A Toast to the Blind

Tue, 03/11/2014 - 18:53 -- CalebS


A toast that shall never exist

to persons not ever missed;

A toast to the sufferers

of ambassadorial botches.

To the working class of the Congo

whose children wield Kalashnikovs.

To the proletariat German;

the indoctrinated warrior and his wife

To the darker man

forcefully emigrated.

A toast to the blind,

whose eyes were shut for them.

Synonymously, to the majority of readers

who have lost interest in this poem.
