by Eddie Edwards Draper


          Maybe we should ground
          you, world,
          for turning out so bad-
          You stay out late
          'til sunrise turns
          into another morn-
          Perchance you may
          behave, oh world-
          our luck, a day or two-
          But we can hope
          one peaceful night-
          is this too much to ask?
          Maybe we should ground
          you, world;
          Your barking breath disgusts-
          We always pledge
          toward the divine
          and rust until we're dust-
