A poetic poke at KFC

“Chicken Change-Over”

unfry all that chicken

like you never meant it

pull it from the vat

washed of all its fat-

free of consequences

the colonel

turns over in his white suit

the tears collecting in

his glasses

you live your whole life laboring

to put something worthwhile on the table

hoping that will be enough

to bring someone to it

uneat your heart out,

unfry all that chicken

we all make free offers

we fail to live up to.
