American Mouse Cartoons

A nation born of some Masonic prank
can only get so far in serenade
of glass harmonica on plywood planks
that Steamboat calls Democracy. He played
the cops against each other Wednesday night
as Walter wandered shirtless to the war
a-callin’, “Captain!” No one came to light
the bar at intermission.

But before
we knuckle in the mustard of our grief,
remember that we bought a mouse with zip
for personality to pump belief
into the engines of our voided ship
(where in the hold, subversive, lurks the prick
whose sticklike fingers hold the founders’ brick).

    Who’s manning the belief pumps now? We seem to be at a decided lack in that station…

    A good laugh about something that’s not too funny. I enjoyed this much.
