Nothing’s Changed—Nothing’s New

Higgledy-piggledy
Speaker John Boehner must
Kneel to his masters, his
Pants at his knees—

Tea Party hooligans,
Corporate money men,
Bankers and plutocrats
Do as they please.

Hoopla!

I’ve got two poems, an older sonnet and a brand-new sestina up at Halvard Johnson’s Truck. Be sure to check out some of the other poetry there. Anny Ballardini is guest curator for today’s work, and she’s done a great job, if I do say so myself.

Update: I didn’t notice until I saw the sestina posted, but there’s an extra foot in the first line of the last sestet. This fixes it: “Whoever’s there that day to kill the lights,”
