unwanted pregnant recitations…

unwanted pregnant recitations

he sits
at the end
of the bar
same place
each day
never has to ask
for another beer
or
what he wants
for dinner
like
his stool
it’s the same
everyday
and
everyday
he tells
the same jokes
after
three beers
by the fifth beer
he’s begun
his rants
about
government gifts
to the poor
how he’s tired
of supporting
the welfare state
how blacks and browns
present company excluded
don’t
really want
to work
preferring to live off
the fruits of
his
industrious endeavors
he confides
he’s not a racist
as he has known
many of
them
armed
with such
personal knowledge
he’s become
an expert
on
the best ways
to sway them
from
their meaningless
existence
advice
offered
for all
to hear
as part of their
dinner
entertainment
my departure
goes unnoticed
as was
my presence
