The Concluding Kangaroo

faster than a speeding bullet

he came to his conclusions

with an utter certitude

 

from reading a single poem

he psychoanalysed

diagnosed and prescribed

 

the victim was then

hung drawn and quartered in public

metaphorically speaking

 

when someone told the kangaroo

that a poem is just a snapshot

a polaroid of a fleeting moment

 

he bounced off

unconvinced

ready for his next conclusive and omniscient diagnosis…..
