POEM: Foisted, or: Bizarro Liam Neeson

He fancied himself a Bryan Mills

as played by Liam Neeson in “Taken”

only the Bizarro World version.

For he had no particular set of skills

[least-wise not as applicable to his situation]

&

instead of having had a child taken

he’d had one foisted upon him.

 

While this didn’t fill his every waking moment with violence

in a fight to recover the child

it did fill them all with chaos and occasional contusions

in the struggle to flee the bedlam.

 

And so, in that sense, they were practically twins.
