Quitting Time

Since my resignation
from the position
of General Manager of the Universe
I no longer try to run it
expecting it to
follow my orders
conform to my rules and regulations
dance to the beat of my drum.
I am no longer responsible
for the destruction of the planet
vanishing species
all the crime and violence
the religious right
government circuses
for traffic jams
and jerks posting in newsgroups.

Next I am getting ready
to chuck the solemn robes
I have worn for years
as Chief Supreme Justice.
Some days even before breakfast
I would utter a few judgements
pass a verdict or two
and declare a sentence.
But before the flapping gown
joins the pounding gavel
on the bonfire
I fully intend
to issue a final order
granting executive pardon
to myself.
