poem for a day

Diamond-dust Ice Cream Sonnet

The Holy Mammon Empire wanted a clown,
A court jester of substantial means,
A distraction to keep the bitch pimps
Bemused and bling-bling brilliant blind.

Where jesus-juice fails, demon-wine succeeds.

Maimed to please, he played the bird
In the burning cage.  His stone face spread
Deaf jam from an ill jar on the bread
And drank the bleeding water of foolish reason.

Where jesus-juice fails, demon-wine succeeds.

As good as everything everybody
Can never have dreamed,
He came, he saw, he squat- squawked
His father for his son, his mother for his ghostly hawk.

Jerry W. Ward, Jr.
