vegans fighting over pepperoni pizza

a traffic cop getting a ticket

or an ambulance driver running over a cyclist to save a dying man

or a Red Sox fan who learns to read

or the inventor of a gliding plane killed by his own invention

to the Bush White House dropping bombs to spread democracy

or “Mr. President, you can’t say Dallas doesn’t love you”

or World War I, the war to end all wars

or Romeo and Juliet, where Romeo finds Juliet drugged, asleep, thinking she has committed suicide and kills himself. She awakens to find him dead and then kills herself.

or that unsinkable Titanic on its maiden voyage

or who doesn’t find irony in a poem about irony?
