Sonnet: Something Happened During the Terry O'Reilly Brawl

by John Kendall Hawkins

Now we'll decide who gets that last boat ride

to the center circle of Dante's Hell,

a port town near where the Mayflower fell

onto deaf ears of corn -- GMO pride.

We dissed the warning, all eyes on the clown.

All signs were there in the subliminal,

tinkling ice cubes of our Chivas Regal:

little sex scenes filled with violent death --

brim-quimmy naked ladies out of breath

who Darwin must have missed on the Beagle.

Hidden persuader, whispered liminal.
