roundup

Post by constantine » June 30th, 2013, 7:01 pm

if i kill the weeds where they live
deep in the crevasses and chasms of random fortune
then i would deprive myself of the pleasure
of whacking them into a fine powder
to mix in the atmospheric flux and folly
the joy of the robin that goes be-boppin along
the whippoorwill and the swizzle-stick
the avian wonder that used to be dinosaurs
until they realized that reptilian isn't all that
come, feast upon my green smorgasbord
be fruitful and excrete with gusto

Doll, you may have found a place of rest but I'm still on the trail.

I am redoing my genome.
I have a glass of Roundup with my Wheaties™ every morning.

I'm just another wacky weed whacker in Texas
where the grass is always greener thanks to:
Better living through chemistry
the invisible hand of the market place that redecorates our genome

oh well another day another ramble
please pardon the ramble pardner
thank you

There I go editorializing another poet got dam me :oops:
