tiny coffins

when the government
realizes
children take up
less space
with smaller coffins
without
affecting the bottom line
of immediate returns,

this is when
it becomes an
imperative
to send them back
to school
so the dilligent drones
can punch
that time clock.

if we refuse to learn
from history
we can just
destroy the future
wash our hands
of any culpability
as we work through
another election,

two sides
of the same coin
equal evils
with no hint of good
set upon marble edifices
for better acoustics
to play as rome burns
yet again.
