Just another Tuesday (really) by Mike Zone

Why are my dad and I
 both allegedly stoned?
arguing over the song 
“Combat Rock”
Was it The Clash? 
or that one band
 You know?
That wasn’t The Clash?
No, I don’t know
Punk or reggae?
It’s just another Tuesday
as The Enterprise soars the space-ways
what exactly prompted this living sitcom scene?
we pop open a couple beers
ignoring the giant dead elephant 
in the room
