4/6/94 - Listening to TV, writing down my favorite lines spoken to create this poem.


The action was mostly
Confined to shouting
From hardware to apparel to appliances
It was still another
Up and down day on wall street
1400 guns in 4 days
Society has gone completely nuts
Money in Library books
We'll show you where people are
Working a better way
Turns everything you think....
On its head
Make you feel there are songs to be sung
Day three - fresh flowers
Our ship sails south
Maybe it's something you eat
Where the quality continues
Spectacular collision in space
Jupiter in July
Like throwing a rock into a pond
4.8 on the Richter scale this time
Some rattled windows and rattled nerves
Red wine, tea, coffee, grapejuice
So effervessive, so effective
The cheesiest
A matter of survival
Skimpy meal money
Something with a bit more leg-room
The guy who sings the national anthem
By the face of it this method is a gamble
The stakes are too high
Needs is dicey
