POEM: In The Scheme of Things

First class was all
Most sold out
Withal more empty than seeming
Wanting even
eves
To match their daze
Equally unenlightened
Missing that sinking feeling
Drinking in their moonshine
Wrecklessly straight
With nary an ice cube
Their glasses deluging them
Halving left
More than half fool
Long a go
At the no room inn
Taking
Parting shots
Through the looking glass
With mirrorlike lust-er
Not even a wave
Lapping up
The hem
And haw
In the face of global swarming
With frozen tears
Of
As if
Monumentally frigid
Proffering
Worthless rocks
Comprised of a billion carrots
Flawless in their mine
And blinding still
Un-be-knownst to them
In a twinkling of the I
that they will no
Is mostly underwater
And in the scheme of things
A tiny cap size
In the sink

It is a mathematical certainty.”  May we wise up sooner rather than later to avoid any more first class disasters.
