This predilection

to malediction

diseases, such as these, if it pleases:

mad cow

hog cough



bold wives tales

in old folks’ tomes

three, the number

of your destiny.

wishes, fishes,

cowboy creamer

spoons and dishes.


the prophecy

naught but a fallacy

whispered in the wings

over moonshine

and dandelion wine

in our cups

under the table.


the forest council

all but forgotten

spun from straw

the golden fleece

fooled, pulled

the wool over our eyes


to the wolves in sheep’s clothing
