fair game…

fair game

the brown bag prophet
was sitting in the public library
trying to beat
the summer heat
he gestured for me
to come over
and said
i get confused
sometimes
especially when
i attempt to think
logically
about the government
and
the law
for example
when snowden
outed
the government
it was called
a crime
but
when the government
outed
an ambassador’s wife
as a cia operative
it was called
political revenge
i personally
would have called
mr rove’s actions
treason
but
political revenge
sounds somehow
like she
deserved it
for serving
her country
can you see
how
i might
be confused
about what’s
fair game
