Watching Television on the 4th of July

 

Trapped in lies 

Like a boy among pirates

I flip channels: 

A Jesus huckster 

Waves a bible 

Like a scalp; 

A loud man 

Claims 

He has a perfect knife;

Batteries;  

Thinning hair;

Miracle bra;

Join the Army;

“Help! I’ve fallen

And I can’t get up!”

Dog treats;

Hemorrhoids;

Insurance;

Hang gliders;

Talking toilets;

Lewis and Clark;

Vampires;

Hotel getaways;

Speed freak

Baseball;

And something 

Intricate, blistered,

Abacus of the soul–

Old men marching in parades…
