elections and assholes

in high school
i was
voted
wittiest.

(medium fish,
tiny pond)

but,
somehow
life forgot
to tell the
World of
my Badinage Pedigree.

in a culture
of taxes
and infinite
road signs,

an elected
official of
humor is but
an out-of-step
ninnyhammer.

and i’m
reduced to
being
the butt
of my
own jokes.

however,
despite
these sterile,
zombie-eyed
corporate rodents
chasing the
invisible cheese –
(who only
laugh when it
benefits
their bottom line)
lighting my
eyebrows on
fire in
Coach Cowart’s
9th grade algebra
class will
always be
pretty
fucking funny.

i know that
garnered me
most of my
votes.
