before you go into your conscience car wash…

help me understand
you’re willingly supporting
a racist rapist
are you really profiting
that much from selling your soul

 

hard rain…

memories
rain upon a tin roof
so gentle at first
almost soothing
but
as night hours linger
dark clouds begin to gather
and the rain pours down
harder than when
they were not memories
somehow
returning pain is stronger
than its first moments
were we not taught
that time heals all
but
apparently not
the pain of memories
in the night

 

in a gesture of appreciation…

as i left
an outdoor concert
i saw
the brown bag prophet
looking
very pensive
he
said
i was thinking
that
other nations
should
follow
israel’s lead
and
name something
after
the president
based upon
what
he’s contributed
but
do you think
there’ll be a lot of confusion
if
so many graveyards
have
the same name
