Lazy Boy

July 24, 2012

Television arranges the politician

true to form with foreign colors

hiding bravely behind a stance

sweetly speaking the veil

as tendrils of power

snake from the screen

with forking smiles and good looks

and our best interests at heart

while from the couch

the remote seems so far away

and the beer is good

and the job is stress

and frankly

you just can’t bring yourself to rise.
