nation like lot’s wife
looks back instead of ahead
with the same results

 

looking for godot in the phone book…

i’m quite aware
that you’ve been looking
for
someone
or
anyone
who will resolve
current world crises
you’ve indicated
you’re looking
for
someone who’s
honest
and
forthright
someone
you can believe in
and
willing to take
the blame
when things go wrong
for all the lame
things you seem to do
on a regular basis
but
i’m sorry to say
he’s
dead
