Like an Assassination

Regina Puckett


There’s so much noise

I lose my calm poise

I run here and there

Acting as if I don’t care

But the sounds distract

Until I gurgle over and crack

Why can’t they all hush

Before we wilt and crush

But the racket continues on

Like an assassination gone wrong
