sin added to sin…

first came the lying
next delusions based on lies
then treasonous acts
while calling the innocent
by your own name criminal

 

under normal circumstances…

under normal circumstances

the brown bag prophet
said
let me read you
a list of behaviors
honoring
convicted
war criminals
assault charge
dui arrest
flippant remarks
in anne frank’s guest book 
running through passport control
without
presenting
travel documents
walking through
an airport
half-naked
abandonment
of
pet monkey
in a foreign country
tagging a hotel wall
bodyguard assailing
fan photographers
all this in
just
one year
now
would you say
these are
normal
teenage behaviors
or
behaviors
that would get
most folks
either
deported
or
given
some
serious
jail time
if
said teenager
was anybody
else
than
some
rich kid
