pointless in new england

the series of
                     talks were worthless
                                                     until the elephant or donkey
took a dive

took a drive
didn’t arrive
to survive

but let us get back to the
                   p
                   o
                   i
                   n
                   t

pointedly pointing pass the participle
never needing nothing nor no one
he cried
       he fried
          then died

but let us get back to the
                   p
                   o
                   i
                   n
                   t

point the way and we will follow
point the way it must be right
point the way with minds so hallow
point the way and we will fight

fight
no peace
no cease
no life

were they native american indians
or
native americans from india
no one really knew
except the vikings
who
       of
          course
                    were
                            from
                                  minnesota

but let us get back to the
                   p
                   o
                   i
                   n
                   t

carolers caroling not caring about the crying
silver bells
kids in wells
pot filled cells
mediocrity excels

but let us get back to the
                   p
                   o
                   i
                   n
                   t

never mind
the point
showed up
missing today
