Fun

Written by: Xavier Keough

Catatonic morning crawl
Saturday, suburban thrall
Car bomb kills 50 in Iraq
My kids live at the bloody mall

Stagnant showered stare
Crusted sandwich, TV glare
Tsunami swallows 10,000 cold
Jesus, I'm losing my hair

Middle-aged, brooding blog
Mow the lawn, walk the dog
Aids decimates African country
My broker is in a goddamn fog

Five o’clock roundtable ruse
Leftover meatloaf, reheated news
Another million homeless this year
I’m so sick when the Yankees lose

Married bedroom gloom
Wife sleeping, silent doom
Midnight landslide spares none
I remember when life was fun
