Ornery

Bitter old men
with pick axes
picking and spittin'
like cocky 1960's
Japanese Cartoons
babbling
over painted brooks
in their quest
to salute meanness
to make
themselves feel big
and serious
but too weary to dream
killing joy
wherever it rears
up
up
too close
to move on
so they pick it
to death
