The Kids Table

Can you believe this shit!
I can’t
Can you believe these people!
The thieves
and liars
and tyrants
and crooks
You’re not one of them,
are you?
Are you one of them?
Is this your fault?
This is your fault!
YOU!
YOU!

-Pause-

Adults look up
and inhale deeply,
perhaps the mistake is realized
perhaps not,
regardless…
adults look over
at the kids table
and wonder how they
will ever clean up this mess.

And the grandmother says
“be the parent, dear,
be the parent”
And the grandfather says
“it’s time to go to work
for you kids, it’s time to
go to work”.
