TSM 135

the Sheep-to-Shore 
phone rings
  
you say ignore 
the elephant in the room
  
during Thanksgiving dinner
its ass-end smell
  
turkey
and gasoline from 
  
the fuming motor
of democracy winching it
  
through the doorway
hoping the walls don't burst
  
then we can just go back
to where we left off 
  
our regular grift and
holding our noses for 
  
Isaiah 53:6 
all we like sheep

  1. It is a crazy world we live in! I wonder if some ignore the elephant in the room or are just too blind to see it! Amazing word crafting as always Qbit! You say what needs to be said in ways only a poet could do!

  2. I’m not sure it’s a good idea to just go back to where we left off. For me that’s putting the blinders back on. That elephant needs to be evicted before it does more damage to the house!
