the old men admiring themselves in the waters (take 2 of Yeats)

13 Jun

the old men spewed bile and contaminants
into the waters
they had hands like claws and their knees were twisted
like wrought iron pylons holding up a ballustrade
they polluted the environment with their laughter and ideas
and at five o’clock sharp they packed up their plastic bags and left
all that’s beautiful remains with the young
