Wars Start This Way
one-upsmanship, insults all in fun
standing on tip toe
to feed the giraffe
in defiance of signs that say no.
If you don’t want to dance,
why come to the party?
So much is fed us by misdirection,
sex scandals on main street
while bandits empty banks
out the back door,
but I’ve swallowed this small talk
before and choked on the fine print.
Now I know the pink bubble
blowing out her eye is
just gum because I gave it
to her, why shouldn’t I
pluck it from her socket and eat it
like cheese on toast?
Sometimes making the dumbest move
is the smartest thing you can do.
