Yachts in Yosemite

A man of the cloth wearing silk!
the milk of human kindness turned sour!
now is the hour as Shakespeare once wrote
whom would you vote for
and why?

I am ready
and ready to die
having
lived twice before
and
died twice as well
and why?

So
back off with the guns
and
the burn out
release
your sons
from their guilt.

If it’s a play that we’re in
and I’m not sure
that we’re not
who wrote the script and
who’s playing what?

I prevaricate
because I like that word
the letters are awkward,
like me or
haven’t you heard?

Yachts in Yosemite that’s me
Yellowstone
gold.
