No Straws

 

 

Is it simply a reflection

Of how easily our collective intelligence

Can be duped into majoring in minor things,

Or are some of us simply stupid,

Perhaps it’s an easy way

To feel warm and fuzzy,

At least we’re doing

Something,

With all of the crazy, nasty

Things going on on the planet,

It’s all okay as we step out of our

SUVS, pickup trucks, climate controlled cars

In our rubber shoes, plastic glasses, fabricated fabrics,

It’s all okay if we can say

With a commanding voice,

No straws.
