What time it is

We’re going down
not for the reasons you think
not for American Idol or Rosie,
not for Cheney or Kennedy
or Tyra Banks fondling Rosie,
they’ll chop off our heads.
Gwyneth’s makeup runs on cue
Cho-time on NBC!
How sensitive! The public’s sacred
right to know, our duty
failed mission, death by a million cuts.

When mini-skirts hide in burkas
soft boys are pushed from watchtowers
Park Avenue, white with anthrax
chlorine breeze, even then
imperial guilt prevails
as progressives tool in limos to
“An Inconvenient Truth”
green-washing
in chic salons
overlooking flames
seemingly faraway.
