POETRY: F. RICHARD THOMAS – THESE DAYS

These Days

I think its time
to go to the woods again,

away from clash and roar
of politics and war.

Perhaps I could even suffer ticks,
mosquitoes, and black flies,

sit around a campfire,
naked,

forget about obituaries
and my Roth IRA,

drink Pabst Blue Ribbon
and toke weed,

wasted
on what it’s like

to be fearless, careless,
young again,

before the uniforms arrive.
