Wages on All Stages

Saint Paul, 31 May 2006

What if the actors on your stage went on strike?
Then just before you're about to get popped
the cast stormed off location in protest
The grassy knoll in Dealey Plaza
became a vacant studio lot

Check the sight lines to the book repository
That detached plastic bubble for the limo
was never meant to be bullet-proof anyway
I wonder why you returned from Dallas
still wearing that bloodstained pink suit
