The Blitz (Problems with Weeping) - Poem by Poetry Forms

We've only just begun
We've got problems
Problems to solve
Problems to avoid
Avoid eye contact
Avoid your mother in law
Law of the land
Law of gravity
Gravity of the situation
Gravity attracts
Attracts bugs
Attracts flies
Flies over our heads
Flies up in the clouds
Clouds of poisonous gas
Clouds of white
White power
White lightning
Lightning striking
Lightning bolts
Bolts of fabric
Bolts with nuts
Nuts about you
Nuts in a vice
Vice cop
Vice clamp
Clamp your lips
Clamp down
Down the drain
Down in the dump
Dump your possessions
Dump a lousy girlfriend
Girlfriend is gone
Girlfriend is better
Better off without you
Better off dead
Dead man walking
Dead as dirt
Dirt poor
Dirt in your face
Face the music
Face the crowd
Crowd of people stood and stared
Crown of people walking by
By the light of the moon
By her deathbed, weeping
Weeping willow leaves
Weeping quietly
