hot to trot…

digital decoupage based on image from Nordic Co-operation (norden.org)

the brown bag prophet
was standing outside
an antique shop
as i made
my way home
from work
he stopped me
and said
did you know
they used to
take photos
of the dead
at funerals
the practice has
fallen out of favor
these days
folks don’t want
to admit that death
is their inevitable right
they want to believe
that going to the gym
popping pills
and
hanging with young people
will make them
immortal
personally
i find them
quite amusing
watching some old fart
running with a pack of wolves
not realizing
he’s
the bitch’s prey
