Truth From Ann

When it rains for days

And a city floats away,

How can you just blame “those gays”?


Well, I have no brain.

I revel in other’s pain.

Flushed my morals down the drain.


Works in Progress

Oh, how time has flown,

These five years, since your passing.

And yet, much remains

As it was before you left;

Consistently progressing.


Not that you would know;

So invested, as you were,

In the status quo.


Wait! That last harsh barb,

So bitter and unworthy,

Harkens back to grimmer times;

Long buried seething fury.


So, the status quo

Remains beneath the surface

Like long neglected hunger.


I suppose healing

Sojourns can consume lifetimes;

And perhaps, even longer.
