A Critical Misspelling

NIMBY is limbo,

an escalator slinky 

manifests attention deficit 

of adults in America

addled and hysterical 

 

while misty eyes on foggy moors

reminisce on marble

and concrete valley forge.

 

we see freedoms, call them twisty-ties

we see demons on our screens

and exercise with them

instead of… oh, never mind

 

to believe its close enough 

simply is not good enough

not good enough

 

not good enough
