We
are the High Horse Army
but far
more
dangerous
We harness
all the horsepower
of a Ford Explorer.
A jalopy of judgment,
long car rides provide
endless time for speculation
and we
the inexperienced erudite
the osmosed wise
the jaded jury –
We
dissect
the honestly less-
than-impressive
daily-doings of our
equal-in-age
but inferior-in-decision
counterparts:
Do
as we say – Not
as we have never done.
The perfect science
of theory untested.
This post-college
pre-marriage
totally un-
(for us) charted
territory triggers
an ever-growing
artillery
of gossip-worthy
drama moments –
posted
for the world’s scrutiny:
the un-private
uninvited
world of technology
books of faces and
beaks of birds speaking
of your indiscretion
we are never low
on ammunition
but somehow
always lacking
for opponents
of our own
Hard, really
to find people
to bruise and abuse
to be used by and
confused by
from way up here
on these high high
horses.
Perhaps
the problem
is our uniforms
aren’t pretty enough.
