Image for the poem Terminatrix April

Terminatrix April

thumbs her titanium alloy nose
through the chain link fence
reminding us of our limitations
 
says we are nothing
but imitations of life
 
It's an irony that leaves  
a metallic aftertaste  
in my mouth
 
while hers is razorwired
---a smile long in between such  
clenched jaw sound bites as,
 
Get with the programming

and
 
Poets are challenged enough
without attempting to write  
a poem per day

 
meant for arrogant asses
in the gulag chugging
their own Kool Aid  
glug Glug GLUG style
 
Nobody
and I mean
NOBODY
is getting out of here
without a noggin batoning  
or being tased in the balls

 
So . . .
 
we write our arrogant asses off
producing substantial verse
for thirty days straight or
otherwise risk being replaced  
by assembly line robots
