Sharp Things

May 6, 2014


Blades of different lengths
with points biting into a
campground picnic table

Some are expensive
some not so much
most are simply deadly

The machete is old and was once
brandished outside a Sacramento bar
to ward off an impending attack

The Swiss Army knife is a cheap
knock off but still allows one to
access the contents of a Stella Artois

Two are throwing knives and proved
highly difficult to use making it a cinch
none of us’ll ever be circus performers

The assemblage of cutlery is certainly absurd
yet we slept two peaceful nights free from
attacks by ninja, Sasquatch or even pirates

  1. Well said my friend. Well said.

  2. Thank you, Professor!
