A Poem by keith moncus
"

get in line precious pretties

"
get in line



by the time
you wake
dead you will be

nothing more
than another's
lap pretty
somebody's b***h

you will not
be favored

authoritarian rule
has no friends
only enemies

the closer you are
the greater
the dangers

get in line
precious pretties

throw aways
nothing more

get in line

I often wonder how many hours of our lives we have spent waiting.

Not just in lines, but waiting to act...we often cheer from the bleachers yet seem scared to get on the field and play the game...we used to do that more back in the sixties...but is getting involved past its prime?
Perhaps.
thought provoking write, keith.

I suppose we've been waiting in line at some point. Some lines require us to stand on our own. Handouts driving us into bad habits. Dependent on others who don't care. A slippery slope what for. I really enjoyed this piece. It worked the brain.
