Poet's Korner

"The Final Act"

I got some groceries, some peanut butter, 
To last a couple of days

The world is just
one long Chekhov play
Got that WMD
on the corner today
The talks, accords
dismantled peace
Got that WMD
on the mantlepiece
To paraphrase
an Edward J
do we deserve to last?
We're in the wide-
ning gyre now
so pull the trigger, pull it fast

--Fig Nugent
