on waiting in line ...

so inspired by minxy's pome and cailleach's 'pointed' stanzas ...
rdg thought she might thumb through her own
manifesto ..... and Look!!


advice to all those knights, waiting in line:


no ill will

men are fascinating creatures -
Really

tangling
in my razor wire
never reading signs posted
warning

Don't walk thru
Don't step over
Don't try to crawl under

moaning, complaining, blaming
disengaging

leaving
ripped clothing
buttons
old socks
clumps of hair
bits of flesh
blood
semen

i bear them no ill will -
Truly

in fact, i always ask them politely:

'Please caution the next fellow
(the one that's behind you)
patiently waiting in line.'
