The Unsocialists

by Jerry Ratch

So, what are you doing now? 

I've joined the Unsocialists. 

What's that, like a movement? 

It's like the Bowel Movement, yes. 

and we'll have dinner 

with the head of the Swollen Artists Club 

and I'll keep my mouth tied shut 

with my own tongue 

and we'll all enjoy a 

jolly good evening 

until I get home and puke 

and/or retch 

or all of the above 

rest assured I won't let the mouse of my 

true inner thoughts escape 

until we're back inside the house
