Exhausted

Like the noxious fumes from a tailpipe Soft and brown as a banana that has gone ripe Piled high as a butcher's bin of beef tripe Exhausted As in James Brown's sole (not soul) As in tenth frame at the Melville Bowl As in where lies the remote control? Exhausted The tipping point where the lung inhales The easterly breeze puffing out the sails The veterans who are tough as nails A sense of humor like Christian Bale's Exhausted The river before the rain The tooth after the pain The friend who went insane The life inside the brain Exhausted The sun as it rises The hemline as it rises The toast as it rises The buttery world with no surprises Exhausted.
