at the community picnic

by J.J. Campbell

just another lost soul
that thinks the world
has gone to hell since
duane allman died

and here come the
other fuckers who
hate the government
until they want
something done for

a slinky dress falling
off the shoulder of a
leggy blonde that
knows how to get
what she wants

there goes the lawyer
busted for having sex
with underage girls
and all the whispers
that follow him

and here comes the
pastor whom no one
would expect holds
the darkest secrets
of all

but nothing stays
hidden forever in
this small town

infamy is as close
as the nearest
prying eye
