Poor Renee’s Face

And now it’s time for another rousing episode of Poetry Corner! Satire edition…

Poor Renee’s Face

Climate change, ISIS, Ebola…oh my!
A tattered economy and homeless…I cry!
Over all the pain we humans endure!
As if that’s not enough, a national treasure,
a public commodity,
has altered her looks
and now is an oddity!
We gasp and gnash our teeth in despair,
weep and wail and pout and shake,
fall to our knees and tug at our hair,
for the starlet has changed without our consent!
Hold your loved one close and say a prayer,
for now is the autumn of our discontent!

-Angel LaCanfora
