    Hangover, you drive me into the yard
    to dig holes as a way of working through you
    as one might work through a sorry childhood
    by riding the forbidden amusement park rides
    as a grown-up until puking. Alas, I feel like
    something spit out by a duck, a duck
    other ducks are ashamed of when I only
    tried to protect myself by projecting myself
    on hilarity's big screen at the party
    where one nitwit reminisced about the 39¢
    a pound chicken of his youth and another said,
    Don't go to Italy in June, no one goes to Italy in June.
    Protect myself from boring advice,
    from the boring past and the boring present
    at the expense of an unnauseating future:
    now. But look at these newly-socketed lilacs!
    Without you, Hangover, they would still be
    trapped in their buckets and not become
    the opposite of vomit just as you, Hangover,
    are the opposite of Orgasm. Certainly
    you go on too long and in your grip
    one thinks, How to have you never again?
    whereas Orgasm lasts too short some seconds
    and immediately one plots to repeat her.
    After her I could eat a car but here's
    a pineapple/clam pizza and Chinese milkshake
    yum but Hangover, you make me aspire
    to a saltine. Both of you need to lie down,
    one with a cool rag across the brow, shutters
    drawn, the other in a soft jungle gym, yahoo,
    this puzzle has 15 thousand solutions!
    Here's one called Rocking Horse
    and how about Sunshine in the Monkey Tree.
    Chug, chug, goes the arriving train,
    those on the platform toss their hats and scarves
    and cheer, the president comes out of the caboose
    to declare, The war is over! Corks popping,
    people mashing people, knocking over melon stands,
    ripping millenniums of bodices. Hangover,
    rest now, you'll have lots to do later
    inspiring abstemious philosophies and menial tasks
    that too contribute to the beauty of this world.

    I'm watching Bruce Almighty. It's a decent movie - until it gets all preachy at the end.
