Thursday’s Rune: 3/10/2022


The Whole Damn Thing

I listened to a song today
it said I want to rule the world.
How did they know?
Before you get all smug and shit,
they said you do too.
Can we both rule
the whole damn thing,
or should we each take half?

How do we do it?
Longwise, like pole to pole
or do we go top and bottom,
like bunk beds,
but with an equator?

Listen, it’s no big ass deal,
but one dumb ass will never
oversee the whole
damn thing—ever!

The very fact that
every motherfucking one of us
wants to be King of the Hill
is the very reason
none of us ever will.


Look both ways for the power that corrupts.
Mind the gaps in geography and greed.

  1. I dunno about that… Ruling the whole fucking thing means dealing with way too much shit, in my humble and lazy-ass opinion. Who really wants that headache? Not moi. You can have my half. K?
