Around Midnight

Strange happenings

in your life

you can’t control

no matter

what

the strife

because that’s them

you’re still you

something you’re stuck

in contention

with

around midnight

cuts like a knife

those

evil

selfish

bastards

ruined your life

all they did was

die

unpunished

that’s why

I write poetry

all night long

living on

with the pain

they gave

since

they’ve

gone

god’s way?

me, you and I

the

only

ones who paid?

suffering

til’ today

’round midnight

my big kitty

interrupts

for another

supper

saying

in

his own way

he wants

a

can of

turkey

cat food

I

mindfully

replied

‘sorry big kitty, I saved your nine lives on chicken, so we’re stickin’ to the chicken!’

you gotta look out for your ki’s best

interests

finger lickin’

cause’ fixin’

turkey

could hinder it

just like ol’ ki

we

keep lookin’ for reasons

to keep doin’ those things

we know

are bad

every season

despite

our

well though out

in advance

half baked

flimsy

reasons

gee!

what’s

really

ailing

us

goes

from

hair

all the way

down

to

there
