smoke from a slow fuse…

smoke from a slow fuse

borders
of true emotions
hidden
beneath
the corners
of smiles
anger
and
rage
lying in waiting
on the darkened street
of insensitivity
the man
with the tin cup
has become
a fearless rebel
for his tin cup
lies empty
as empty
as his hope
for a better day
all
he’s seen
is what
cannot
be obtained
so
there’s
no more singing
of hymns
that make promises
of
a kingdom
to come
now just
harsh chants
for
what has been
denied
