full disclosure (20160902)

of course since we are in the business
of promoting the public good
we believe in complete transparency

no no no–i don’t mean full disclosure
whatever gave you that idea
our secrets are our own and we

will gut you and your family to keep
from exposing them to the light of day
it’s not as if we want you to die in a fire

but there it is and there you are

by transparency we mean that we are in
the business of taking on the role of your
parents guardians in absentia as it were

guiding you molding you and turning you
into us because we’re the public
and that’s good

  1. I actually kind of got a feeling of unease. The creeps even, because this brought many a thought of Cults, Body Snatchers, Evil Illuminati, so many other things that run through my mind.

    Regardless, it was a fun read and I quite enjoyed it.

    Consider me feeling blessed and impressed to read such a talented story. Thank you for sharing it with the rest of us.

    Cheers! ^_^

    1. Thanks so much! I’m glad it made you feel a little uneasy. I don’t think it’s a happy poem even if it’s a little funny.

      1. I noticed the humor too. I do appreciate a good mix of unease and humor to compliment it. Still, the feeling of that little bit of something being off…it really gets you (or at least me).

        Cheers! ^_^
