Poetry: Ladies & Gentlemen

 

Like dogs
We sit
And we wait

Like stations for buses
Like boards for announcements
Like pigeons for crumbs

As if the end’s going to change

As if it’s going to get better

As if we’re going to get wise

Like Buddha
Like Jesus
Like Muhammad Ali

Man

To say we’re the greatest
Means even less than our words
