Falling Off The Bandwagon

An aging hipster
in the public
square
spies a comely
CO-ED

He watches her
chant the cant
of this protest
de’jour
admiring her
figure and faith
in the system

and earbuds soundtrack
his witness
some catchy chorus
about some common
angst

and when that
refrain returns
he’s convicted
she’s an Angel
of his civic
religion

I’m spry yet retired. I reside in the inner city of a major metropolitan area of the United States. I read politics. I watch baseball. I hum along with the tune. I June swoon, and moon the bad poem. Post here, are old and new. Opinions are my very own, except when wrong.
