revival of medieval times…

as i left
my local barber shop
the brown bag prophet
asked
did you grip the pole
i replied
i’m not
certain
what you mean
the prophet
said
folks used
to believe
that
bleeding
the patient
would drain out
the cause of the illness
or
the evil in them
during
the procedure
the patient
would hold onto
a pole
to encourage
blood flow
of course
all the procedure did
was to facilitate
the patient’s death
seems like
bleeding
is in fashion
again
given current
government
policies
and
procedures
everything
that
was
the life blood
of this nation
is being
bled away
