Orgy Over

all the world's battlefields
like monumental beds

where millions sleep it off
in the arms of one another

after going at it like hell
like there's no tomorrow--

walking through this one
on tiptoe not to wake them

Gerontic Fable

Two people meet in the middle of a bridge.
They start talking.
One's a Democrat and the other's a Republican.
They finish their conversation amicably, 
each walking off in the opposite direction, 
each scratching her head in confusion. 
"So, how was it," is the question they face 
when they reach their compatriots. 
"Fine," they say. "But those people 
over there have a hard time with reality."
The sound of a speedboat shooting by
beneath the bridge. Its co-pilot
holding up a sign that reads:
Jump, jump and we'll save you!
