Eternal Recurrance

Groundhog Day

A journalist from a big city wakes up
In the same one-horse Pennsylvania town
Everyday hoping for something
Anything to be different
 He trudges onward to see men
In long black garments
Make obscure pronouncements
Wondering why his life
Has come to this

Thick, vinyl-sheathed cables snake this way
And that forming a chaotic web
Connecting what is shown
With what will be represented

The rodent may be regarded as vile
Obnoxious, maybe even vicious
But without his fur-felt presence
There is no show

 

Nobody wants to consider six
More weeks of winter
So we wait on a shadow
To tell us where to go
