READING THE MINDS OF MADMEN


Something happened at our local library today.

I read the mind of our market’s madman, then
I read the mind of our president
And both minds are poorly written, I found out.

I read that our madman gathers citizens at the market
Lo, and proceeds to eat a living
Toad and lick away its green soup in their full view.
After each show, nauseated citizens flee and battle nightmares.

I read that our president gathers citizens at the arena
And proceeds to regurgitate a half digested toad and green bile.
After each show citizens clap
& disperse to eat each other for supper.

I have read the closed minds of madmen and presidents
And they are all books poorly written by citizens,

Stored at our local library.
