    cane me

    I deserve a caning.
    bamboo tagged
    and complaining
    like chop sticky
    ameri-pop licky
    jail-time. Until my
    distant eastern
    far seeing eyes,
    magnified by
    chutes, lose
    sight of time
    and methods
    of teaching
    that crime
    dont pay

      I haven’t thought about that kid who got caned back in the nineties since, well, the nineties. Didn’t Weird Al do a song about that?
