purple mountains majestic

Yankee Doodle went to town
Hurled swiftly at my head – space
Ducking candles
and whatever objects were nearby

Cutting the lawn with household scissor
A popular punishment
In the roadkill café
Escape was a certain fated experience

Taking a chance that
The ultimate sacrifice
Would be well met
While eating blackberry pie
Cobbled together and coupled
With cabbage soup

Really it was just soggy
Imitation lettuce
And I was grateful in the end

At least the light was on inside
