15 Minutes to Fame

A moment opens to eternity
Fastidious, attached to passing moments, 
I live in Warhol days
An open heart mends wounds
Are you for or against them? What’s your political game?
Everyone's got his 15-minutes of fame
Are you on their side or mine? Is it them or is it us?
Is there an us anymore? Who is us anymore anyway?
Anywhere I’m supposed to know? Did you know …
My headache keeps me awake to 
cover the worldwide news
An open wound  ~ Nightly sound of the evening news
A bleeding ulcer seeking to be healed
Closer to home news too, all news is bad news
Except the rescued puppy thrown in to control you
A news-forecast makes everything worse –
Ignore the news a week or two; say your regards to Pluto
Ignore my bleak forecast of doom
All of us are doomed anyway
The more you do - the more gets done
When you stop doing there’s no more to get done
Another open wound …
Always the dream remains of another go-round
Take care. Hope … to see you there
If & when there is another go-round
