Anne Babson- A Poem


Do you remember the Cage film?
Do you know why the caged film sings?
You see that slick preacher still slim
On the screen, his rambling rantings
About a day yet to come, but the nuns
Left the cloister, while the Pope sits in Rome?
The church camp youths seem to have run,
But where?  The night clerk left the phone
Off the hook.  That daycare lady
Disappeared.  That drunk got sober,
Followed steps, but text him – maybe
His phone is dead.  It clobbers
You, doesn’t it, boggles the mind
Now to redownload Left Behind.
