Sonnet: Laudanum My Ass: I Want My Money Back
by John Kendall Hawkins
Who let the crazies out of the bottle?
The seven deadly sins, bats out of hell,
Pandora's blue vase, Pavlov's ringing bell --
a dark age upon us in full throttle --
Marquis de Sade escaped the Bastille raid
and Justine gave birth to monotonic
minotaurs who chase fish and cry, You're made
all the way down to the subatomic --
pull over and let me see your free will.
Kennelheads, snarling junkyard dogs for brains
at war with Cogito. Little blue pill.
And thoughts all loco motive derailed trains.
I once loved a girl: still life table rose.
She fidgeted and couldn't hold her pose.
