OBAMA AND SUICIDE SPUTNIKS by David Lawrence

The eighteenth offering from Ten Pages Press is now available: Obama and Suicide Sputniks by David Lawrence.

FISHY POLITICS

I cast my eye into the fish tank.
I will never ever eat a fish with its head on the plate.
I cannot look into its eye.
It disgusts me
Like the President of the United States trying
To fillet me,
To strip the Constitution down to its bones,
Reapportion my meat
And suck on my skeleton like it’s his very own.
