On the turn

They’re taking selfies and we remain hope less,
if
incredible journeys begin with ideas
whose idea was that?

There are eighty pints in a ten gallon hat
and whose idea was that?

this is cards on casino
a strip show
the flim-flam and
to a man
we fall for it.

The university curses me
for being ignorant
I curse the university for
being irrelevant
and
nobody wins.
