Invasion of the Senate

by Kevin T. McEneaney
Wed Sep 27th, 2017

When Ray Moore takes the floor,

I will need to install a seat belt

on my frumpy television couch

as I cradle a bottle of whiskey

while I peruse a biography of Tchaikovsky

with memorable melodies leaping

in my ear as I struggle to hear

a wisp of threshold logic.


When Roy inveighs against evolution,

I’ll don my spiffy alien robot hat

constructed from a battered colander,

attempting to fill my head with wonder.
