Dan Veach: Down On The Sea

Will you stop that incessant pounding?
I’ve heard your tiresome argument
a thousand times before:

Might makes right!
is all you seem to roar
till you’re blue in the face.

You might be right,
but you certainly are a bore,
forever foaming at the mouth

with flying spittle. Now please,
could we have some quiet
for a little?
