Tempting Fate

The suicidal man
dresses in black
and lies down
on the autobahn,
climbs Mount Everest
wearing dress shoes,
insults Mexican drug lords,
defames Muhammad
in profane cartoons,
asks on the internet
to be someone’s dinner

and survives.

So he paints
a copyrighted
Disney character
on his garden wall.

  1. I just saw on the news yesterday or the day before 10 or 12 people were hung off a bridge somewhere in Mexico. They’re are a tough bunch. This does have a sting in the tail too. Nice write!

  2. you made me smile with this… and maybe with his latest act of defiance he’ll get noticed enough to get his wish? I really like this poem
