Rat Race


Ungrateful and graceless people
Mostly the "insert" ones
Have taken the minds of most of the rest
They have sickened society to worldwide hysteria
I'm listening to an owl outside my window
Hopefully he's after the rats
That sounds much better than teen pregnancy disasters on national TV
I could wait for that until the next commercial

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.
