Resisting the Tyrant
Let us love like old maniacs
like yesterday’s lovers
Discarded under the quilted sheets of seniors homes
as withered passages of time
under the watchful eye of some wretchedly despotic orderly
Armed with bushels of coloured horse pills
and a strong-armed lights out doctrine
attempting to kill the soul.
Let us do it doggy style
and forget all about arthritis.
