I Could Do Tears


Ladies and gentlemen,
We are so pleased to announce...
A successful defeating,
Of those we have picked to see fail.
Now...
And with your help and best wishes,
It is our hope to undo what we've done...
To mend the lives of those,
We have totally broken to prove with this doing...
An assurance of an empathy,
We will...
From this day forward guarantee to be documented.
And proclaimed...
As a slight adjustment made,
To have created a dint in our greatness...
With a returning of all the hype and pretentiousness.
How does that sound?

'It reeks with sincerity.
Read it again.
This time lose the smile.
I understand it comes from nervousness.
But the audience?
The may perceive something else from it.'

I could do tears.

'Only to drop from one eye.
Not both.'

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
