Laying In Weight (A Poem)


Watching them, I seem to hear the far off drone

Of a Lockheed P-38 – fork-tailed devils as they are.

Chanting their chants. Waving their signs.

Nothing more ominous – fork-tailed devils, they are


Cruising by, I seem to feel it welling up inside me,

That feeling of being a destroyer – gunship as I am.

Thinking my thoughts.  Holding my own.

Nothing more ominous – gunship as I am.


Remembering Churchill, carrying a Tommy-gun,

And reminding us all of the thuggery.

You never pictured Bertrand Russell in a knife fight

Philosopher punk.  Philosopher drunk


The game is laying in weight.

The fight was never so deep.


So empty here ... leave a comment!
