When It Rains Too Long the Sun is a Luxury

Paul did not believe the new metal detectors
would find every gun that enters the local school.

His nephew was arrested and detained for bringing
a bright yellow Luger-shaped palm-sized water pistol to class.

Paul helped replace school windows hit with drive-by
playground gun fire.

All this while politicians worried about the cross-
dressing population’s affect on children

Drag scenes from Monty Python’s Flying Circus on the web.
And paintings by Georgia O’Keeffe.

The number of misspelled words increased three fold
while no student found the least common denominator

to add a group of business fractions
that would have prevented the recent bank crisis.
