LESLIE HARRIS


Laughing At Illusions

Hearty banter plays
Vocal chords strum like Banjo strings
Merrily, merrily lo' they sing
On the autumn
'Round the ring

Thoughts oppressive as they may
Time honored singing ends in May

Dining on their oats and whey

Save your grave; that's the way
Nothing stays as often as the rain
Dance again,
