Hopefully Someone Has Called 911 - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Those blood gurgling screams heard,
Coming from the other room.
Why are those people being tortured like that?
The sounds are unbearable.
It's ruining the tour of the foreigners,
That have come here to visit.

'They are the ones who have just discovered,
Their amenities have just been cut...
As a result of the recent sequester.
And they must be the legislators,
Who have noticed the caviar and escargot...
Have been eliminated from the buffet tables.'

But didn't the chef guarantee,
Their accustomed feast would not be touched...
By those budget cuts?

'Apparently they had been told this.
The chef took for granted,
That the sardines and tuna fish would suffice.
So hopefully someone has called 911,
To immediately address the emergency.
And the medics are on their way,
To appease the ones overcomed with disappointment.'
