Away At Home

Lord and master has left us
In farcical pursuit of Trumpian dreams
Columbus killed us all
But not all is as it seems

Stairways to nearby heavens
Can be found in false 4-star hotels
But loan me please a cajun lass
Craving anew the peel of Notre Dame’s bells

A new roof holds out the rain
For a mere 5,700 bills
Have you ever marveled true
At the Parisien multitude of hills?

Sacre Cour, Pere Lachaise,
Arc D’Defense, take a Metro ride
Lily roamed the Catacombs
The exit far over on the other side

Try to load some pictures
And MOVs will never do
Facebook is SO in trouble—
What’s a demigod to do?

Home again, home again, better mop the floor
I promise the litter gods I never will leave evermore

About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
