Appertaining rage
directed at deaf athletes
is rattling my peace.

Waking my children.
Sucking out solace from rest.
Jerks quiet reading.

Caterwauls bestrew
commentator monotones,
jolts me from my book.

Tedious spouting
demands manic-eyed focus.

Littering, fruitless,
nugatory squawks nettle;
screen’s heedless of grunts.

Irking, tawdry squalls
magnify impervious,
unmoved TV set.

No warriors here.
just paltry, impotent bays,
vexed to distraction.
