poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2010


If my eyesight doesn't betray me
I can see the first lady
Right across the street
Grabbing a bite to eat

What I have achieved lately?
I stand and contemplate see
Think about the lazy days I
Spent staring up at gray skies

So I might as well do something useful
Like fuse together metals with few tools
Or chat with a presidential candidate
Get mandatory candy late

I start to cross the street
When a car from afar gets close
And if a few seconds I become
Just another one of those

Victims of vicious events
Vote Obama for president
