Sharing Poetry Today, Part 1

"Worst-Case Scenario," by Christopher Walsh, 3/24/2016

Assholes will ass, jerks will be jerks,
Ill-humored will de-humor 'til nothing seems funny;
The mean will mean harm and the harm will be mean
Events? They'll go south, quick like a bunny
A worsening worst; the nadir finds new depths
("You thought THAT was bad? AH HA HA HA HA...")
And all will be stunned, left swearing 'til faint
'Cause so much is wrong — when existence goes "BAH."
