Trying To Be Like Dick Cheney

~

~

  I was

(another

enthralling episode

begins)

~

 I was

(we’re all on the edge

of our

theatre seats)

~

I was doing

Sunday

morning

chores

~

Three plugged toilets

freed

& burnished clean

& still mopping

~

~

A dancing work horse

tied to a

pyramid

brick

~

A battalion of queasy soldiers

swallowing

ammo &

spitting bullets

~

A horse fly

smacking

& cracking

the front-room window

~

~

I was

trying

to be

like Dick Cheney

~

One

American

top dog

go getter

~

When the mission manager

declared

“That’s enough ~ don’t

do anymore ~ you’re done”

~

& I thank

Jesus

I am not

   Dick Cheney…
