common core standards..

common core standards

i was quite
surprised
to see
aunt bea
working with a calculator
and several
large
national maps
so
i inquired
as to why
aunt bea
said
i’ve been
working on
an idea
of how to
address
all those
homeless
school children
we
just
empty out a city
that’s equal
to their numbers
i’ve done my research
and
it appears
that we will need
to evacuate
san diego
california
cuz
it’s about the right size
for there’s
over a million
homeless children
attempting
to learn
the
common core
on empty stomachs
while sleeping
here and there
and
sometimes
nowhere
so
let’s get
those san diegans
packing
now
where
to put their parents

if they ever had a life…

caged
humans
with beasts
devouring
their souls
once
walked
our streets
as school children
laughing with peers
listening
to teachers
with the same
wide-eyed dreams
of  tomorrow
as all
but
soon
so very
soon
those dreams
became
the rusty stairwells
leading to rooms
of decaying thought
where prostitute hopes
lying on beds
of desperation
festering
with bedsore dreams
were offered
a new way
of living
with
a simple
price of
one’s
soul
