Do I have opinions?

I believe in Romeo, as Juliet said
when she lay in the coffin pretending to be dead.
That Bush is no good, said the ambush chief
and I guzzling gas can get no relief.
The father figure resembling Charlie Chan
believed in the decisiveness of a fatal gesture.
As for me, I believe the most important news of the day is Lindsay Lohan
was an also ran (what could be truer)
a hundred years from today
when my reasoning, logically sound though obsolete as bonnets,
will have gone the way of Sir Thomas Wyatt's sonnets
Because you can't strut your stuff
when you're old and gray
amd there isn't time enough
There'll be some changes made
beside the hemlock tree in the shade
starting today
A change of heart or in the weather
in the bread and butter eaten by Werther
who has to decide whether
or not or not or not or not or not
nobody wants you when you're doubt and out
and this I know without a doubt
let the luck that was once a blaze remain an ember
I swear to be true to you come December.

Why December, Molly sweet?
with burning ember, bush and heat.
As for me I'd rather see
a truer heart immediately.
