Opener Escape

Early November.
Tomorrow is Deer Opener.
I will spend the length of the sun
sitting in a tree.
Although a deer would be nice,
the real trophy
will be peace.
 
For trees are not known
for spewing divisive
political rhetoric.

Mid November.
Next weekend is post-election.
I will return to the woods
to sit in a tree.
Although a deer would be nice,
the real trophy
will be escaping the results.
