Defense Mechanism

By Keith Kennedy

Just try and keep up
You slothsome and loathful pelicans
No way can you outrun a train
My cackling breath beating about your face
Is all you can hope for – or perhaps a sidelong
Shoulder glance filled with comtempt and achievement
But don’t give up – I need an audience to witness this
Astounding, devastating victory
