When shopping, make sure you read all the silly round labels on the boxes

poetry

Genuine is
leather, gold, sugar, diamonds, Kentucky bourbon,
You.

Coats need tailoring,
gold the work of practiced hands,
sugar only comes from canes
and Kentucky Bourbon is one thing only found in
Kentucky.
(check the label).

Oh, so pay the man and
buy that stamp on his degree.
Buy the gold medal on the
Barbecue sauce wrapper.

I’ll drive an hour and sit
singing loud enough to
wake the neighbors. And we
won’t say anything of substance
until we’re safely set away.

But we’ll say it.

And the only genuine I’ll pay for
is the only one I get for free.
