a good day to die
the warmth of god’s sun is here
warriors gather round
to protect their sacred graves
once again a trail of tears

quick draw contest…

aunt bea
pulled out an old photo
of me
all decked out
as a cowboy
complete with
a genuine cowhide
double holster
holding white
simulated
pearl
handled pistols
she
said
as i recall
you
and
your cousins
were into
tv westerns
gun smoke
hopalong cassidy
and
such
you boys
would stand out front
practicing your quick draws
producing enough noise
from those cap guns
to send
the neighborhood dogs
into a barking
frenzy
back then
you didn’t
consider
the real consequences
of carrying out
a quick draw contest
with others
how death
was the real winner
seems like
the new administration
hasn’t quite
realized
that yet
or
doesn’t care

political bedfellows…

political-bedfellows

our bed is empty when you are there
death’s black coldness grasp even our souls as you approach

marketing their songs…

marketing-their-songs

like
keystone cops
the
new
administration’s
advisors
and
cabinet
bungle
through
each day
destroying
the lives
of
others
but
never
a business partner
that
would
be
a sacrilegious offence
that
children
and
mothers die
is
the political cost
of
doing business
lord knows
such
vermin
cannot contribute
funds
to their personal
executive
bank accounts
so
with
a clear criminal conscious
they
encourage
executive orders
to be
signed
by
a well
trained
russian monkey
whose
facial expressions
clearly change
as
the monkey
dances
to
the
organ grinders’
tune
of greed

state funeral…

state-funeral

it appears
that
the autopsy
was conducted
just prior
to death
numerous
writers
documented
failing health
bleeding
from
self-inflicted wounds
delusional
claims
of fame
rabid dog attacks
on
any
questioning sound
but then
the village
responded
the autopsy
was
quite
appropriate
