The Modern Way


By John J. Gordon


I'm mad as hell ticked off at you

Right now I’m plotting what to do

Perhaps confront you on the train

Or catch you walking in the rain

Accost you at the corner bar

Or as you wash that prized sports car

Create a scene at your workspace

Or as you shop the marketplace

Once caught you won’t escape my grip

No holding back I’ll let it rip

Those witnessing will be aghast

As I expose your sordid past

Of course there’s risk in face to face

Since you’re a certified nutcase

On second thought I know what’s next

Stay home send you a scathing text
