I Can’t Have That, Lord Almighty

Lord almighty, I kicked up a rally.
You’ll have to forgive me for being so quaint.
My oversized novelty carnival stand
just collapsed in the middle of Mardi Gras.

Now what am I going to do?
I can’t very well walk to the old police station,
they’ll laugh at my shirt and applaud for the stupid.
They’ll applaud for the stupid is what they’ll do
and I can’t have that, Lord almighty.

Wharved.com I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
