Payday Loans (11 of 31)

My father doesn't know Zeus from Zeno
and doesn't care. His philosophy works
through his hard hands, and not through easy talk
(We have two ears and one mouth. Robert Koh),
when he makes the giant a.c.'s fever go
from power plants and when, at home, he checks
his children's tantrums with one palm. He takes
charge, you can say, of climate control. So,
when schoolbooks tell me how these authors dig
their dad in whose furrows they trod and trod,
how for their famous pop those poets burn
or how yet another posse fights the pig
of an artist-pater, Ah! I thank my god,
I am the spark of an electrician.
