Poem: The Owl Speaks

By: Kris Price

the owl

The owl speaks too:
Raggedy, obese, dirty old slobs,

Mortality is a weightless spoon
Education is a basket full of flowery looks.

Religion is a meticulous tune
Critical Thinking is hidden away in nooks.
The owl shouts from his rooftop,

Money is paper candy
Energy is gobs of hollow knots.

Politics is a soggy dandy
Humanity is a huge waste of watts.
The owl lobs at the lynch mob,

Intelligence is a hefty owl
Space is contained in a box.

Truth is a wet towel
Time is a series of beatnik clocks.
