Who give a flying
why the caged bird sings?
I do, and you do, too
because we are the harpies.
Making jokes about ketchup,
and knives are scarce, not crying laughter.
But you are talking about ketchup
and implements you provide
with which others cut their meat.
Men of a certain age advise you
because its assumed you need it.
No one can quote poetry these days.
Gaping moments remain so
because my computer died.
Find a partner who can quote poetry-
your children will be exceptional,
and make great tips.
