fat man and little boy

i have married twice
the first marriage
was the result of brainwashed stupidity
and the desire to have a household
with two parents who respected each other
living within it
not beasts of burden

it would have worked had he not been
a halloween masked demon
and i a foolish child

the second
was for love and a common cause
but poor health and geography
depleted it

they both ended
in a mushroom cloud

how happy i am to know
my actions
will spare the world
nuclear winter
by simply never again taking a vow

i’ll fry pork chops tonight
and listen to war pigs
as i smile
