Poetry Less Than Daily

Strong Poems. Beautiful Poems. Tough Poems. Poems w/ the F-word. Poems less frequent than before but no less kick-ass.

Moby Dick II

You! With the semipermanent features!
And the Best Buy in your pocket!
And the limber subliminal cells telling you what to buy!
And the popsicle stick scythe!
What do you think you can cut with that?
You have a Lincoln Navigator for a sphincter!
What do you hope to accomplish with that?
Naming vehicles after famous presidents like that!
And also perhaps Vasco de Gama!
Go ahead and titter! This poem
Will never change your life!
But then again you’re a vampire!
So you’re kind of dead anyways!
Who was Ahab’s first mate and later died?
Starbuck!

I love it. What a fun way of saying to gadget-giddy robot heads, Get a Life.
