rooseveltian revenge

now
i’m not one
to
gossip
and
spread
unfounded rumors
but
just yesterday
while
waiting
for
church to start
i happened
to
overhear
that
one of our
local politicians
had
suffered an
untimely
death
seems
he visited
the wilderness area
he was
so opposed to
and
suffered a
debilitating
injury
honey
that just means
he couldn’t walk
anyway
he called 911
and
they sent out
a couple of paramedics
his exwife
was one of them
well
when they got there
they started in with their
professional questions
name and such
and when
they got to his age
he said
sixty-five
honey
he’s 80
if
he’s a day
well
his dear exwife
said
since this is
federal land
and
protected by
the antiquities act
all
they could do
was to take
his photo
so they did
and
left him there
lord
didn’t it
get cold last night

  1. Good Lord, Charlie, you outdid yourself on this one. I read it and laughed, and had to read it a second time while laughing out loud and now I can’t stop laughing (belly, out-loud laugh). Very, very clever use of words. I just typed cleaver instead of clever, maybe appropriate mistake, huh?
