SUNNY DAY, Carl Cañizares

Loosen your tie and roll up
Your sleeve. Break out the
Wine for your chosen team.
It’s victory in November
Twenty-Twelve and it’s
Red all over on this sunny day.

Cut the waste and look away.
Stand your ground and don’t
Cave in. Right is right
On this January day
Twenty-Thirteen and it’s
Red all over on this sunny day.

Deny the complaints. Ignore the
Claims. Entitlements aren’t real,
Not anymore.
It’s a new deal this May
Twenty-Thirteen and it’s
Red all over on this sunny day.

The walls falter.  The ceilings
Cave.  The un-entitled loot while the
Righteous look on amazed
In the August heat of
Twenty-Thirteen and it’s
Red all over on this sunny day.
