Sonnet: Twenty Years of Schoolin' and They Put You On the Day Shift*
by John Kendall Hawkins
O, you could almost feel the heavy weight drop
from our shoulders as Big Mouth blew off high
into wind currents he did not control.
Please come back, some cried. I can't, said the pol,
I've risen and can't get down from the sky.
I love you, DJ, cried a knee-neck cop.
Magically He took Covid up with Him;
He dropped miracle vaccines by the score,
and we went back to a nation confused --
heartless, brainless, arthritic, child abused.
Jan Sixers stormed, yelled, Nancy, you're a whore!
FBI narcs dressed just like Tiny Tim.
What a mess we've made of democracy!
Caligula sideshow hypocrisy.
The Bard from Duluth, "Subterranean Homesick Blues"
