poetry by j matthew waters

long live the queen

to the newborn child
we toasted promise
to the graduate
we toasted career
to the foot soldier
we toasted godspeed
and to the bride
we toasted happily ever after

to the winners of the world
we toasted success
and to the losers
we kicked them in the ass

there was so much to cheer
so we refilled
and re-raised our glasses
shouting for joy
for the kings of the world
and their terrible entourages
have finally been blown away

december two thousand fifteen

  1. Hot damn that’s good

  2. Never praise the one that need… alas a humanity is bleak.
