at the heart of the matter…

at the heart of the matter

the brown bag prophet
said
i was watching
the football game
over in the mission
dining hall
when i saw
a classic example
of false advertising
there was this group
of military folks
encircling
an obviously
wimpy
and
frighten family
the recruiting voice
said
to get to you
they will
whoever in-the-hell
they are
will
have to
get through us
once again
i was baited into asking
what’s the false
advertising part
he gave me his
dumb-american-look
and said
in the middle of the circle
should’ve been
a senator
and
a corporate leader
cheerfully smoking
a cuba cigar
