just an old poet…

don’t write me
no epic poems
bout life’s struggles
don’t
need
your words
i lived it
and
don’t tell me
how
some
shiny city
on
the hill
awaits
me
cause
there ain’t no bus service
from
this part of town
to
there
oh your voice
still
resonates
with
hope and faith
but
you’ve yet
to
really
start your journey
after
you’ve toiled
in the smog
of
injustice
and
hate
for
a while
then
try clearing your throat
and
say those words
again
hell
did you really believe
there was a chance
for
unity
even when
a wannabe dictator
tried to overthrow
the government
with
murder and mayhem
congress
couldn’t join together
to do
the right thing
so please
read your optimistic
onomatopoeia lines
to yourself
cause
unity
has not
or
ever will be
possible
when hate
is seared
into
the hearts
of
people

 

dinner invitation…

there’s an extra space
at our dinner table now
so when you’re in town
senator seeking handouts
stop in parkland florida

the harvest…

simple
farming principles
regardless
of
species
or
location
weeding
is an important
control method
to
facilitate
the course
of
growth
and
to keep
the yields high
allowing
for
increased profits
for
corporate
and
corporate sponsored
individuals
thus
economic advantage
requires
that
social sacrifice
be made
the
public
must
recall
market shares
are
proportional
and
a strong presence
in
government agencies
can
negate
events
like
sandy hook
las vegas
and
florida

hymn to freedom…

pound
the drum
though there’s
no money
in the pot
pound
the drum
warn all
our freedom
can be lost
pound
the drum
awaken
the living
and the dead
pound
the drum
until
your hands bleed
and all hear
pound
the drum
though souls
grow weary
of battle
pound
the drum
pound
the drum
so much
to be
lost
pound
the
drum

snap you’re dead….

snap you're dead

note to congressmen
suffer the little children
doesn’t mean to cause death

adultery…

tin cup

the brown bag prophet
was sitting
on a bench
in congress park
next to a statue
of astraea
and had
a smug smile
on his face
as he read
how
us congressmen
had put
their
own job security
ahead of
their
sworn duty
he cackled
and said
and they call
me
a panhandler
