John McKernan

 

 

OH SHUT UP McKERNAN    BE QUIET

 

You pretentious shadow of Andy Warhol
Run for office if you think you can win

Whoever taught you the word LOVE
Must have used Portland Cement
And wind chimes sealed in a cave

Wait a minute              The Kitten
                                   Is slinking
                                   Its way
                                   To the kitchen

Unlike my immobile fossilized brain
This blue kitten moves slow
One paw inches in front of the other
Its back right paw touching
But not triggering a cheesed mouse trap
