Random Poem:

True Leaders Kick Dogs.
badger

Mortacheeno had knitting needles
 1
through the soles of his feet,
 2
but when the people asked him
 3
he walked up that hill
 4
and rang that bell
 5
like it was the first day
 6
of a new month.
 7
His new pressed trousers held out
 8
an inch moat
 9
restrained from flesh
 10
by an inch worth of someones pleasure
 11
as the string lead legs
 12
marked out a dance
 13
that was lost to all
 14
besides those
 15
who danced it at the time.
 16
Waved a flag,
 17
and scaled down a facial
 18
that reflected a book
 19
that others used for private moments
 20
yet used at the time
 21
to fan the flames
 22
of a pan handled feeling.
 23
Yet, the signature was thrown down
 24
to congratulate
 25
those winning dogs
 26
who ran leaner,
 27
who consumed less
 28
and possessed the swifter,
 29
leaner leg,
 30
that won the race
 31
but lost the run
 32
as they watched their owner raise a glass
 33
to a winning voucher
 34
as the runner
 35
panted itself into a glass
 36
in a dusted corner
 37
of what seemed like somewhere
 38
that seemed worth running from.
