the geraniums shriek the sad news

because the day was galloping
I had to have a nap
and then woke up to find myself
inside the jaws of the nightly trap

undecided about the work
I mulled just what to do
and thought about a poem
like a foot within a shoe

but what could I put inside
the poem bag to rattle?
it's all about lawsuits
and losing the paper battle

the geraniums shriek the sad news
that the day is almost done
I've got up with the moon
and dallied with the sun
