LIONS AT FEEDING TIME  By William Teets

Lost members of a forgotten tribe 
Backstreet Battle Kids live on round edges
 
Avoid lions at feeding time

Soul sisters who dance for dollars and Delta Blues
splash in stale beer on fringe midnight madness 

Rancorous song sang loose and loud  
homeless heretics pose as sacred saints 

Quarters dropped into stone Wurlitzers
rogue relics and fairy tale yarns
  
Wait for Magi fear almighty Ra
unholy tales from unholy scribes

Scatter and dodge uncovered mirrors
Backstreet Battle Kids circumvent the sun

Avoid lions at feeding time
