been a while since i waxed lyrical, but i was inspired by recent events
i call this "ode to the member for new england", although the subtitle would be "joyce, bro", ahem....
barnacles are quite tenacious
clinging with ungodly strength
shellfish types and quite audacious
maybe it's their member's length ?
bottom feeding hard shelled creature
watching as the world floats by
what care you for moral virtue
filtering immense supply
when at last the tide is turning
safe because you're so encrusted
out to dry and yet not burning
knowing that you won't get busted
