history repeats….

spirits make
another
silent march
pass
the living
whispering
warnings
as they stare
into
empty eyes
eyes
that cannot see
the dangers
of
hate
and
greed
or
how denial
of
inhumanity
turns the earth
into
graves
graves for
children
graves for
the poor
graves for
the weak
graves for
those
different
and soon
graves
for
the blind
who will then
join
the march
with closed eyes
that
see

 

god forbid you stop and think…

history
has
nothing
to
teach
you
even as the bodies
pile up
you’re steadfast
in
your allegiance
to
voodoo political
witch doctors
and
are
more than willing
to
accept
rape
murder
and
the pillage
of
the nation’s wealth
chanting
like
on skull island
kong
kong
kong
or
sieg heil
sieg heil
repeating
those familiar patterns
spoken
like a five year old
with
limited
mental capacity
it makes
you feel
superior
or
at least
equal
but
such equality
was
what
the founder fathers
feared

 

gop…

the brown bag prophet
was sitting
quietly
at
a park bench
writing
with
furrowed brows
in
an old notebook
as if
he were
attempting
to
solve some
deep mystery
when i inquired
as
to what he was working on
he said
i’m 
trying to figure out
how the republican party
might redefine themselves
once they
sell out
the american public
during the trump
impeachment trial in the senate
i’ve come up
with some
but
i doubt
that
they’ll sell
the political product
he said
what do you think about
one of these
for
gop
grand obsolete party
goons of putin
gag order presidentship
gaga over putin
guilty of panjandrum
government of pandemonium
guardians of pantophobia
gouging oppressed public
i
interrupted his long list
and
said
you’re right
neither you
nor
they
can sell anyone
on
turning your back
on
the constitutional fact
that
no man
is
above the law

 

presidential address…

the brown bag prophet
was listening
to
a radio address
as i
was
leaving work
he
said
you know
everytime the guy
in
the white house
talks
i feel
like
he’s saying
get on my glory train
with
stops
at
auschwitz
belzec
bergen
chelmno
dachau
not
a ride
i
want to take
how
about
you
