This and That
every morning you zip on your Lion's suit
roar at creeping drivers
snarl at dawdling waitresses
sharpen your claws in public
practice ferocious growls,
forgetting about walking the yellow brick road
not so very long ago
and that the man in the pointy hat
told you and Dorothy the truth.
She dabs blue, then red
