Never Again

Eventually,
I went to a stand up poetry gig,
Never again,
Never again.

Every audience member around me,
Listened,
The way you would listen,
To an answerphone message,

While you are drowning in a bath,
Mutual water boarding,
Rumsfeld jazz,
The repeated administration of legitimate force.
I had to leave,
Thank God I lost the will to breath,
It's worse than stand up comedy,
Never again.
