For my friend Trish.


March of Yesterday

Stand up straight
To see the passing parade
Yesterday is marching by

A banner in hand
Like a head in the sand
Stop that baby for to cry

If I had a mind
And an interesting rhyme
Id write myself out of here

But we have to look
Like some history book
Run home and live in fear

Hear the trumpet
See the marched up girls
Twirling accusatory batons

Look dumbfounded
At the badly rounded
Arguments logic flattens

State after state
Until it was too late
All of the hearts did harden

White house lawn
Looking very forlorn
Millions of turkeys to pardon
