Donal Mahoney- A Poem

Let’s Solve These Problems, America!

The poor are hungry in America.
Their numbers would fill stadiums 
throughout this prosperous land.
And feral cats are running wild,
eating songbirds in our yards,
plucking koi from garden ponds.
What can Americans do?

We can trap those feral cats,
knock them on the noggin, skin 
and marinade them overnight, 
barbecue them in the morning,

visit homeless camps
and invite the poor to stadiums 
across America to feast at halftime. 
Let them eat and give them traps 
to catch their own feral cats
and become self-sustaining.  

Next, to solve the problem of Ebola 
we can make Liberia the 51st state,
send food stamps to our new citizens 
and enroll them in Obamacare. 
There’s room in Texas should
they decide to emigrate. 

Donal Mahoney lives in St. Louis, Missouri.
