just a matter of time…

after all
the campaign promises
are made
and
dollars have
exchanged hands
then
we will bury
the
dead
after they
who have been vilified
at walls
for
childish hopes
of freedom
then
we will bury
the
dead
after your
sons and daughters are lost
in wars
that
buy the gifts
for the rich
then
we will bury
the
dead
after earth
expels a toxic breath
burning
the
lungs of all
saving none
then
we will bury
the
dead
after you
are homeless in your own land
begging
to
protect your rights
and family
then
we will bury
the
dead
tho after
nightmare awakenings
you’ll see
that
one new grave
is for you
then
we will bury
the
dead

 

first taste….

lord
what
a day
after years
of
wearing
hand-me-down clothes
from
my mother’s
rich employers
i finally
marched
right
into walmart
bought myself
new
clothes
never
worn
by
anyone
but
me
now
i’m
finally
feeling
free
