in hope

I’m hoping
that in hell there is
a very specific space for those people
who resolutely say the right thing
never short of a cliché types
those thick tongued jobbing actors
who do voice overs between tv shows
in a tone employed to be your special friend
guide you over the rocky shoals
between soaps & other garbage
those folk who folk up your life
with down home cod philosophy
seeking sentiment not education
all to take your money
I’m hoping I get to go there
on my grand tour of hades
poke them often & long with blunt sticks
in revenge for what they do here
of course I’ll be going there
you know this because
all poets do
