All the sepia smiles
And the kodachrome laughter
What came before?
What came after?
“Maggie!” growls the ogre,
And Maggie strains
 “Smile, you fucker, now!”
This lie remains
Everyone is blinded
As the flash pops
From now and forever
The truth stops
“Maggie!” grunts the ogre
As Maggie moves to stay.
 “You can fuck off now.
Just go away.”
Everyone was happy
The grandchildren can attest
And there were no fuckers.
…and the rest.
