the great horn owl speaks
words to its friend the darkness
asking why it is
that so many in day’s light
can be so blind to the truth

as you like it….

as you like it...

said
i’m considering building
a doorway puppet stage
to increase
my financial situation
i’ve noticed
that
currently
cardboard karaoke cutouts
have been placed
on the political stage
singing the public’s favourite songs
of paranoia
and
animosity
and
of course
numerous childhood rounds
of delusional financial dreams tunes
of
a balance budget
with
tax cuts
hell
i’ve even heard
songs sung
with attributional bias tones
providing performers
with
a range
of protection
from
any
responsibility
so
you know
there’s money
to be made
with
such
performances

aunt bea
was sitting
at her kitchen table
writing a short note
on a post card
that was
adorned with
the american flag
she asked
if i could mail
on my way home
i said
most certainly
as
i walked
into the post office
i read
dear mr. trump
please take a moment
out of your busy schedule
to read
some
part
of the constitution
you won’t have to read far
so it won’t be
too taxing
you only have read through
the first amendment
oh that’s
the right
to express beliefs
and
ideas
without
unwarranted
government restriction
that means
folks
have a right
to dissent
even
with you
oh
and
don’t skip over
the part
about
the right to
practice
his
or her
own religion
or
no religion at all
as
confusing
as
all that
may
seem

seasoned to taste…

political appearance
a compelling
act
with
good form
and
tearful images
all designed
for
your
taste
of justice
sweetened
like
your favorite
ice cream

within this belief

suspicion
vines
its way
into the smallest
spaces of doubt
quickly spreading
suffocating trust
and
though
one day
the roots
may be severed
suspending life
a dried vine
even with
the slightest
spark
burns easily
consuming
its host
