Poetry Corner : “Ward 23A”

Ward 23 A

Eating burgers and sipping Bud
we watched the idiot (did you have to say that word so loudly?) box
Jimmy Kimmel grabbed me
but I pushed him back into the tube
Ed Sullivan used to stroll out in the old days
and that shows you how long I’ve been here as NCR
but Ed and I said hello!
shared a smoke and went our different ways
But look Carson is out and beating up Merv Griffin (on rerun night)
Thank god our friends the men in white kicked them out (no visitors allowed here)
But shit they just broke the television or “telly” as they say on Coronation Street
Now we will miss Sesame Street and those great reporters on Fox
God bless them for their spin!
so glad their incumbent did not win!
Where did that Trump go?
But this new guy Biden is for me
What a guy to thwart the coup!
Tomorrow will have him for tea
Golly gee
Do you believe me?
