The Miraculous Punt

“to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack of what is found there.”


Here’s the news today:
He strangled his wife, cut her up into little pieces
that resembled Michigan. (Blood-brother to Ted Nugent)

In Atlanta,a bus carrying college baseball players
plunges off a bridge and six die,
including God himself. (Serves him right!)

In Redwood, California an unknown poet
hung himself and ten other poets,
the proverbial hanging participle. (Grab crotch here)

On the Gulf coast,a rogue wave
washed away a group of Barbarian-American kids,
tossed the kids ashore at Cuba crying libertad. (Yikes!)

Finally, sports fans, the Dallas Cowboys punted
just when they were about to win
the Superbowl for Tintern Abbey. (Kacke)
