A Sonnet For Today


I said to them I was trying;
it made no sense because
they weren’t in the least
impressed. It took two
bottles of wine – not a lot
expressed in terms of their
hegemony, but we knew
at the end who was wrong

that’s what you get I said
explaining, you can’t make
yesterday’s hysteria secure;
it is ephemeral. Today you
almost came close to
understanding why...
