My Earth Day Promise
“The planet isn’t going anywhere. WE are!” – George Carlin
My parents both crossed the Styx
at or before their 60th birthday.
Prince’s purple reign ended at 57.
Michael Jackson, guided to infinity by 50.
And me, well, I am 43 years young.
Judging by the trends,
the intangible stresses
of Afro-American life,
and my apparently shoddy genetics,
I think it’s probably safe
to not give a shit
about Earth Day.
Save the planet?
You save the planet.
I’ll do my part
by guzzling all the bourbon
and flirting with waitresses
who know better
than to be
disappointed by me.
