Knoepfle 11-11-04

now and winter coming on

rain all day today
heavy downpours
bad day for street people
and this on all hallows too

what happened yesterday
well there was a bad flight
had us sucking in our bellies
but the pilot corrected his engine
and we survived

perhaps like the nation
pray god we come along
better than we have earned

and saturday yes saturday
three florida teams lost
which should not have mattered
but well it did
and how do you feel about that
and ruff ruff ruff and ruff ruff ruff
how the bulldogs ruffed
all over georgia

and sunday the news
nine marines dead in iraq

how would the prophet
finish this poem
or the compassionaste
witch of endor
what would she say

reader what do you say
it is november
and the heavens dark
our sun gone into hiding
