Adrift

My Halifax Copter won’t fail me

buzzing over atolls nameless

and suburban shopping malls

without purpose

That was it you know

It was those damned helicopters

finally pushed him off the ledge

Another killer civil servant run amok

no more this nation’s saving grace

So I’ll say no phones! No bulbs!

Buried in this trash mound

His undilutable slang truth

While we pay attention to all the wrong details

Have you ever felt better in your life?
