by bofa xesjum

down by the river
a bulldog barks
a nameless creature
leaves its mark

high in a penthouse
a diplomat bows
a spider laughs
and a cat meows

at the county zoo
a bear escapes
it tries to behave
but gets into scrapes

at the old dark house
a detective calls
he juggles a pipe
and two tennis balls

at the side of the highway
is a parked rolls royce
from its darkened depths
comes a whispered voice

a crowd quickly gathers
and stops and stares
the world is ending
but you don’t care
