Down Falls The Tyrant - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki

Worthy of a sonnet or an ode
don't you think? I asked
the worthy citizen in rags
pushing a grocery cart
brimming with trash
down the dirt road-
all concrete and asphalt
long gone in the aftermath
of a great catastrophe.

The citizen screwed up
rheumy-red eyes at me
grinning a toothless smile

'Have a taste, mate? '
