Brother Bollocks
was told
since youth

to study
alternative
energy

to learn
the metric
system

that
the old ways
were ending
soon

now
in his
sixties

there are
still
gas stations

still
inches

his chronic
apathy

his lazy
lassitude

had cost
him nothing

Brother Bollocks
continues
to fill his
tank

to keep
an eye on
his weight

in pounds

in order
to increase
his chances
of a longer

wasted

Imperial
life
