The Bully Adolescents

Unless you want
some kind of chicanery,
I’ll have none of that talk
in this house or even this yard.

Stickin’ with the trees
could be foolish
to the bully adolescents,
until they see none other
than their childhood idol
Billy Russell, man of stage and screen.

He could talk to them,
one would think,
and let them know
he admires his fans,
no matter how small.


Author: Aidan Badinger 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.
