What the Bastards Do in Your Name

You know that corned beef that comes in a can. I admit to really liking it. One reason…easy to sneak into the joint.

Anyway, when Snz and I started doing the grocery store thing, she couldn’t believe: One…that I would dare consume such a thing, and Two: that I referred to the product as “dead dissidents.”

So now we have a Pope who was a big deal in Argentina during the time of the “Dirty Wars.”  Great.

And to show I can poem about damn near anything…albeit poorly, I did this little ditty three or so years ago.

What the Bastards Do in Your Name

That corned beef
in a can
that used to
come with
a key
I refer to
that delicacy
as “dead
dissidents”
Labeled a product
of Argentina
the powers to be
of that principality
didn’t take kindly
to protestors
The opposition didn’t
win
and the crowds were
getting thin–
“disappeared” into
a little tin?
that used to
come
with
a key
