The Sign

You’re down there on the street,
My spinning wheels soon to meet
You think you’re really something huh?
Dirty, mangled, and ugly campaign sign!

Over you I go. Ha! You pathetic old red soul.
Back and forth and back and forth
In my new blue truck… here we go!
I just keep on running (while snarling) over you.
You in red must know by now, how
Gone by, run over and flat
And dirty you truly are.

You tyrant you run to catch your power.
You run and run and you grab it
Thinking you won and you did one time.
Everyone’s watching while you try to
Change the world, you joker,

Your nothing but another card to play
Your destruction will not be forgotten
Your changes no more than more complications.

You idiot you just re-complicated the world!

Now you sit in a bunch of weeds
On the side of the road in a yellow bag
Near the corner of this way and that way.
Get back here you litterbug and
Take out your trash!

If you take the time to read a poem then take the time to study it and form an opinion as well. Then put your opinion in the comment box. That is basic critique, what Neopoet is all about. Do it often or catch the next ride outta Dodge!

author comment

the commercial in my head as the guy is buying a new, blue truck and running over the poster! LMAO! New truck is your choice, and you can make the red truck the competing brand, all beat to shit with a mangled 'Trump' license plate hanging off the front bumper; [Oh, did I say that?] Snigger, snigger... Nice stuff! ~ Geez.

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!
