remodelling…

aunt bea
for as long
as i can remember
had these
little superstitions
like
something about
a broom
and your feet
i just can’t recall
all the details
right now
but
she persisted
with her beliefs
in a number
of those types
of things
so
i asked
how she could
continue to believe
in such things
given the advances
in medicine
she looked me
square in the eye
and said
witch doctors
have traded in
their feathers
for white coats

bring in the clowns…

political flimflam man
has got
a song
for you
each
word
was written
with you
in mind
not one line
says a thing
but
sounds
as if
it does
there’s no doublespeak
no speak
at all
carefully colored
with emotions
they’re
cotton candy words
so
hurry
hurry
hurry

to the big top circus
of government
where death
for the very young
is not defied
but
part of the act
