Oh,

Why

Good

Lord

above,

did thou

not answer

tiny prayer

for your love,

blessing me not

mit baseball glove?

In ’59 be loyal, good

As boys conforming should.

Wish loudly on the proper form:

you’ll get: (a) patriotic uniform,

and (b) a nose cone shapelier than (c),

yon sawed-off Christmas tree, and/or (d):

joyously-gossiping geiger counter, to locate:

(1) radiations of happiness, (2) fallouts of hate…

or (3) isotopes of merriness beneath the sprig of missile-toe

Oh, Say: Friends, Neighbors, Segregate, Neutral, or Distant Foe:

HO-HO

LET’S

PRAY:

PEACE

BE ON

EARTH

AS IN

OUTER SPACE. AMEN!
