varmints

when i was a kid
at the cinema, they’d play
some short films to start.

rabbits throw anvils
at singing baboons; talking
pots chase magic spoons.

man, i’d love to see,
today, mickey’s marching brooms –
the movie starts soon…

…but what’s up these days?
i’m harpooned with all these ads:
“BUILT FORD TOUGH!” “BUY SNACKS!”

i don’t want ads or
film trivia, you maroons!
bring back my cartoons!
