BUMMER!

Bummer you lost touch
Bummer you know too much
Bummer I came here
Bummer I went back there
Bummer your wife’s in love
with a barman
overworked and underpaid
Bummer for you, man!

Bummer, another body without a name
Bummer, no one’s to blame
Bummer, sexual abuse in the hall of fame
Bummer, you have a black curl
Bummer, it’s a girl
Bummer, swearing goes on air, breakfast’s ready
Bummer, pharmacy and deadly viruses going steady
Bummer, I can’t say a Negro and a fag
without someone seeing red
Bummer, I call both Mom
Bummer, they came to my prom
Bummer, you’re jobless
and healthless
wifeless
homeless
lifeless
(Other than that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?)

Bummer! Pope Francis blesses a pedophile priest
Bummer! Tabloid journalism is a starving beast
Bummer! Sensationalism in presidential elections
Bummer! Politics is no place for political correctness
Highbrowed literary critics
buried one more poem today
out-of-touch elitists, pseudo-intellectuals
and pretentious jerks cheered YAY!!!
leaning over the coffin
Wow, what a bummer!

Bummer, fake news on a nuclear war while
I fucked myself on all fours
I need to get laid
Bummer, you’re a whore!

  1. I must say it again!!!

    Holy fucking perfection of words. You were relentless in this one. You hit me with a poetic baseball bat over and over. I tried to hide, and you found me and hit me harder. This is truly modern poetry at it’s finest.

    This is one of those that makes he want to toss my keyboard out the window. Truly masterful writing, Bojana.

    1. Thank you, B. I started writing it recently. This is number 4. I’d send you the links of the first 3 but I’m in Serbia and my internet sucks so try googling these along with Bojana’s coffee and confessions to go-
      Poetic justice, A response poem,
      50 shades of rain.
      Stay tuned. There will be poetry only till Oct.

  2. Damn, LilSister! I’m standing, clapping and screaming, ‘Fuck yeah I can die a happy warrior. There’s a voice crying in the goddamned wilderness!’

  3. Loved the way to switched to the exclamatory expression a little more than halfway through than back to the softer voice. “Bummer!” for a powerful four than back to “Bummer,” to close it out. The whole thing was spectacular but some lines just blew me away.

    “Bummer, I can’t say a Negro and a fag
    without someone seeing red
    Bummer, I call both Mom
    Bummer, they came to my prom”

    So experimental and someone on the other site said “crass.” Perfectly, powerfully crass.

    Engaged. Indeed.
