Nerfed

Cloudy skies: the weatherman says:
Precipitation of leaves expected,
brown ones, Juan has hoped,

They’re easy to sweep away,
Juan has wished, chewing grass
while learning to dance

his grandmother’s fandango.
Someone has replaced Theodor’s
baby. We filed the impostor

at the nearest precinct
guarded by a crow and an albatross
fighting over salted meat.
