murder most foul…

father’s suicide
when family’s torn from his arms
happy father’s day
how strange and unnatural
this great nation has become

 

get on board…

a choir
from
a local church
was
singing
in the park
and
one of the songs
they sang
was
the freedom train
since
the brown bag prophet
was in attendance
i asked him
what he thought
of
that particular song
the prophet
said
there ain’t no
freedom train
it’s
a merry-go-round
moving
so damn slow
that
by the time
you’re aware
you’ve gone
in
a circle
you’re
dead
or
dying

 

no way out…

to keep
the beast
contained
he carefully
designed
the box
its frame
was nailed
with
solid planks
of
oak
stronger
than
human hate
each plank
was
nailed
with
fear
from
the inside
to
prevent
the beast
from
pushing
the panels
out
and when
man
constructed
and
tested
the design
it
worked
