Two poems by D.A. Pratt

To the conversation …

everyone brings
their preconceptions
and misconceptions …
rarely a really open mind
(let’s hope for better in the future) —
name the topic
and the problem
will be obvious:
the burgeoning stupidity
is becoming overwhelming …

Girls …

Just Wanna Have Fun
(the cover version
of Cyndi Lauper’s song
by Miley Cyrus …
the fourth song
on her Breakout album)
is an anthem … or
ought to be one …
what do boys have
to match this one?

It’s all about defining fun …
girls wanna have fun
on their own terms …
guys have fun
in their own way …

But there is no song
out there (or so it seems to me) for guys
like “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”
as sung by Miley Cyrus …

daveD.A. (David) Pratt “continues to continue” in a comfortably conventional community in Canada … he is genuinely concerned about the burgeoning stupidity that seems to be virtually everywhere …
