AT THE MALL-a poem [W, 10-25-17]

The speakers squawking
Some loud noisome non-tune
Words so strange in my ear
They must be from some distant
Pestilential planet

The middle-aged woman
With the face stamped
“Made in China”
Trudging past
A reluctant teen-age boy
In tow

She sings along so sweetly
In a soft soprano lilt
With that band of raucous rockers
Whaling from the speakers overhead
In an accent coated
With honey from Kentucky
