franklin…

he was
a part-time
philosopher
and full-time drunk
dispensing
sage advice
prophecies
and
profanity
with the same
propensity
asking
me
on more than
one occasion
while
carefully
balancing
his
brown paper bag
if it’s
true
that museums
have to return
stolen antiquities
to
indigenous peoples
how come
the
gold
ain’t returned
by the
church

  1. When did drunks with loud mouths become philosophers?…Honestly, that’s kind of insulting to us real thinkers…but that just goes to show what the world thinks…there’s not much difference between what people consider wise and what is charismatic garbage…
