Ode to Michael

   watermellon in winter we all
   are tyrants at some levels

   have you noticed Michael

   watermellon seeds are tiny in winter harvest?

   and not as sweet

   as the good ol' summer time

   what shall we say to the seeds and slaves Michael

   the CEOs and those

   who's only question is

   how much?

   in this autumn of winter spring

   what can we say of summer 'cept

   praise the passing watermellon seeds

   in harvest love.
