SOMEBODY'S WIT'S END

SOMEBODY'S WIT'S END

A Poem by kublakhan27

"
Take up your solace
and puncture the water balloon
petticoat of pride
skirting my unsightly sense of loss

Tap to attention
the chemicals swishing to the good
maybe jolt a lazy tide
with a moon's tug of realism

Dispatch a fur of flies
to usurp my sugar coat

Anything to make it clear to me
that I can be the undergarments
of a power ballad and remain credible
beneath the latex applique of rock and roll
