In Praise of Couch Potatoes
Spring 2020

No bra. No shoes. A blanket for cape.
These tubers are the heroes of the day.
Years ago, we used them to escape
a famine. Irish farmers wore the cape.
Today, coronavirus fills the landscape.
On their thrones, these couch potatoes stay.
Boob tube on, a blanket for a cape—
potatoes are the heroes of our day.
