Corrupted government bureaucracy
Stalls the redneck fisherman.
Removed his gun before the deer were ready
For the hunt.
Stalled battery in his truck
Like the stalled debate in congress
Slows understanding
More conflict as leaves fall
Into the favored creek
Marking the end of another season.
This one blocked by melted debate,
Unresolved opinionated conflict
Saying no to the last season of the old man’s love.
His gun will never again get the deer.
His rod will fish no more.
They buried him under the branching tree
By the creek.
