no post today

the brown bag prophet
said
won’t be no mail today
the nypd
done
spirited away
the mailman
for
the heinous crime
of
talking back
to them
how
dare
a black man
speak to them
when
they ain’t
requested it
so they
ruffed him
and
cuffed him
tossed him
in their
unmarked car
the one
that
almost ran him down
and
took him downtown
leaving
the mail
unguarded
for
primetime criminals
to review
and
deliver
as they
saw fit
from
the safety of
their
sidewalk  cafés
your
tax dollars
at
work
