Ode to the Erased Words

(you were heinous) You look lovely!

So sorry you couldn’t find a place

in this metropolis of stanzas

towering tall that we’ve built!

(more like built itself from the casualties) What?

Oh, it’s nothing that concerns you.  Look we dedicated

a bench to you in this park!  Well you see

no one’s here because it’s raining.

(lovely rain) Ugh, it’s heinous isn’t it?

Thank you for voicing your concerns

about the growing litter problem

and your rusted placard.

(now we actually have to consider them don’t we) No don’t worry.

We’ll have it cleaned up in no time.

No no, there’s no need to protest.

It’ll be lovely.  We promise. Lovely.

(just lovely)
