Poetry Corner: “Creeping October (aka Homecoming Week in North America)”

Creeping October (aka Homecoming Week in North America)

Guess who is in town
for the big college football game
goon jocks with their war cries
purple painted face engineering students
initiation rights
into what?
last binge?
and the roar after the big play
fat assed frat girls as caramel sundaes
for their boys
and we all know the topping I’m talking about

but back home everything is so decent when the turkey is carved
