there’s been so much to absorb what with elections, wars and all that
i would like to propose a picnic in montana to get to know one another
a potluck for the world
miles davis said we could use his music
and coltrane and thelonius
they will smile on us from above
republicans can bring potato salad and hot dogs
democrats fried chicken and cole slaw
independents can never be told what to bring so surprise us
libertarians same as above
green party how about a nice organic salad and fresh baked bread?
unions bring the beer
country clubbers can bring the wine and scotch
and if you wouldn’t mind terribly, since you can afford it
all the desserts!
homeless bring your hunger
me and tom waits will bring ” eggs & sausage with a side of toast
coffee and a roll
hashbrowns over easy
chili in a bowl
burgers & fries….”
can you bring good chips and salsa, pitchers of lemonade?
it is time we took a break from the drama
and enjoy what is here again
