repeat performance…

thinking of arleen

i’m
so sorry
your
existence
has been
grossly
misrepresented
in
the media
that
prime time coverage
that
boosted
our ratings
about
deaths
in your neighborhood
have
shifted
to tweets
by
presidential candidates
in
the wee hours
of
the morning
indeed
babbling
about
bubble gum issues
but
that’s
what the public
wants
to hear
so
corporate decisions
of
profits
over
public responsibilities
had to be made
perhaps
you could
die
again
