Parlor Tricks

For Champ Biden

Poetry

When you love a dog,
you want it to live forever
because you know
just how close
tomorrow lies.

You bring that puppy
into your life,
home from the pound
and its harsh chemical smell,
its harsh reverberant chatter
of barks that echo
through tile, concrete, chainlink.

The political arena is a farce. You either choose to laugh at it, or you have to go mad. Parlor Tricks chooses to laugh. If we can’t get rid of fake news and propaganda, might as well make a mockery of it. Parlor Tricks publishes political and media satire on Medium.
