not the time

if you call peter porcupine
“peter skunk”
that’s nothing
you’ve got nothing
on him
the land he owns
is owned
by a king
and the country
is comfortable
this is not a time
that tries men’s souls
this is a time
that doesn’t try
because its soul
is a deck of banks
that trade names
every few years
so we forget
what to call
our stadiums
that we piss all over
as free agents
