	HUGE RED LOBSTERS

	By Raymond B. Kupelian


	Transparent tiny water tank
	Shackled monstrous red lobsters
	Struggling to get out
	Unconscious of their fate...
	At any moment
	Following
	A plump chef's order
	To be plunged
	Into a boiling pot
	Of salty water...

				To feed our hunger
				Reduce cholesterol
				To  cut weight
				And as a substitute for  aphrodisiac
				To enhance our sex life
				Man, it is so great
				You bet...
				To be a superman
				Ignorant of its own fate...

	Moved by fatalistic endeavor
	Ignorant of my own fate
	With the wild dream
	Of opening my soul to the universe
	One day,
	Of my own free will and accord
	I submerged
	Into the abyss
	Of the American dream
	Which turned up to be...
	A red hot pot.
