Lost Poem

Half asleep and half awake
a very odd time when words
loose their straitjackets
and quite unusual couplings take place

that gerund is up to no good
and look at that substantive clause
moving in on a vulnerable verb
only trouble can come from that conjunction

even the colon is turning a blind eye
and just when you want cousin comma
and the paragraph police
for a bit of law and order
they’re nowhere to be seen

the whole thing’s descending
into pure anarchy
and then the light
the poem’s gone
forgotten

Brian Butler
