A THRILLING PROPOSITION ( 0) Printer friendly page Print This
By Darrell B. Grayson

If you will-

Picture yourself, sitting on a cold

Stainless steel commode in a cage,

Head bowed, waiting to grieve.

When suddenly, a rat and a cockroach go by.

Scurrying along in their train come the warden,

The prison commissioner, the governor

And the attorney general.

Bereft, you continue the process of grieving

As these-break their contemptuous, yet

Fearful stride through the facility, pausing

To stare fascinated at this particular cage.

-be dignified, as you complete those personal

Rituals of grief.
