vote slides now

vote slides now

alan rodman

big true blue sky blowing off
all those puffy gray clods today

some oblivious fool
once cast his grim shade

bringing down
cold rain

no ice cream castles
after such hassles

such a scare don’t stare
there’s feathered canyons in his hair

now he tweets out furiously
moan and piss won’t go away

and such a price we have to pay
for presidential golf

I’ve looked at clowns from vote slides wow
from gin and booze and still, somehow

it’s clown’s delusions I retell —
I really don’t know clowns so well
