A Dime Short

It's been a long day.
Fifteen long hours
All yearning for showers
This is power through separation.
The social spiders weave their webs
The heated discussion singes the silk
Sun-bathed and curdled,
Once sweet flowing milk.
So here we are,
This day is done.
Gasp for the sneeze
That never comes.
Cathode rays
To quiet the day
And Bourbon's street lights fade away...
