Is It Poetry (1958 - / Bus-Boys And Poets, Washington D.C.)
No one really checks to see.
Do they really care?
Some place else a brothers from
he puts his finger in
Mummy dearest eats the worm
and now he is ashamed
They target the right ones
and the parents know the children
have no credibility
she becomes pregnant
and he has a bottle of the morning after pills
while his wife has her own
and is a certified nurse practitioner.
My daughter wasn't meant to see corruption
on this scale.
