Lady Libertine, A Poem

by Jeffers Onadams


Lady Libertine seen squeezing
her head through a crack
in a blood-stained stucco wall.

Calling for an end to all this violence;
too tense, ever since they
penetrated picket fence privacy . . .
it has been 1984.

What are we punching in for?

The system jaded to the core
before they blew off bank vault doors.

Seen this all before.

Life isn't a second hand
clocked in at nine
and out at five.

Shopping with how much
we buy as a
gauge on our lives.

Even she knew as they
slit her wrists with
financial knives.

A Roman game within
a single, bifurcated cattle stall.
A double-sided coin,
a border wall with
highball drinkers and bill collectors,
and sharks swimming in
both regions,
ready to sink teeth in.

Much like politicians pandering, I am an enigma. Solving only my own puzzle. Maybe?
