Sonnet: I Saw Death Falling From the Sky, Ouch

by John Kendall Hawkins


It's raining dinosaurs. They're killing us

one by one. Soon we will be some other

species' peak oil problem. Oh, brother,

a balled T-Rex just missed me -- like a bus!

They've fallen everywhere -- minds howling:

werewolves from London or Ginsberg's 'best' list,

no one escapes their wrath: you get the gist:

all body snatchy, blame fingers scowling.

Intergalactics are kicking our ass.

Will Smith never saw the right-cross answer

to his Earth welcome punch. NECROMANCER

writ on its knuckles. Now we're all gas.

Oh, f*ck it all, I'm going back to sleep.

I'm no intellectual, nor very deep.
