Mighty Lightning Struck Out–Again

Began and ended

With sloppy sentimentalists

Duds fell with dull thuds

Hung on words with frayed threads

Whispered down wishing wells

Stayed so long as the chips fell in May

Skipped town till the bitter end

Nine-to-five fools focused

Annoyed at random, shunned attention

Those were old ploys, floogies with floy-floys

Which kids didn’t care much about these days

After adulthood weren’t much in the mood

Waited till humanity fell in the fall

Didn’t that really just beat all?

Non-participatory trophy wives clubbed

Staged no excuses barred grudge matches

With Herbalist the love bug

And Bradley love you bunches
