next poem
words home

He said
"I so hope to god you're wrong about this."
"I hope to god you're wrong,
and I hope to god I'm right"

you gotta feel for the bit characters
in all the great epics
the characters who are slaughtered
to make a thematic point more obvious
these writers are fuckn butchers
all those walk-on poor bastards
run through with bayonets
cos the paying public
are too stupid to get the point
the first time round

I so hope to god you're wrong about this
And I hope this isn't my final line

And maybe it's a good thing that you move on
Maybe its good
To give up a life for the work

To pick up his pieces
Where you left them
Just sweep them under the welcome rug
And invite in next month's
Guinea pig.
