Isolation
Desperation
Perspiration
Desolation
Devastation
Condensation
Precipitation
Damnation
Our nation
Lost patience.
Determination.

Pitter patter
Bitter litter
On our lips.
Sweat
Like molasses
Descend upwards.
Patiently.
Can’t wait.
Can’t stop.
On and on.

Flip flop
Drip drop
Snip snap
Zip zap.
Zoom boom doom.
Move on.
Groove on.

New words
Old memories.
Where’s my cat?
The shimmery
glimmery
Yellow fish
Died yesterday.
But there’s still
The gooey blue one.

Butterflies
High and dry.
Good bye.
Lie and die.
Sigh and shy.
Slam bam sham damn.

Time to say
Farewell
To the neighbor
And the slick
Brown dog.
And the shaggy tree.
And the jittery squirrel.

Where’s my home?
Right there,
Silly.
Oh I see it.
But wait,
My heart’s blind.
Just lost it yesterday
With the yellow fish.
Need a hearing aid too.
But the blood’s still
Pumping away.
No worries.

There’s still tomorrow.
Oh dang, there’s still tomorrow
We’ll see how that goes.
Don’t expect too much,
Just waiting for you.
