Gotham Farewell

When doomsday dawned
the anxious video
informed us somnolent coffeepots
of our imminent composure
       and alack
the gears, the wheels, the clocks
went to work as usual
ignoring the lampposts looting stores
       while, tra la
upon the esplanade
a few unemployed trashcans
argued which would bow first
the Bridge or the Green Lady.
