cancellation of fireworks…

event canceled

i asked
the brown bag prophet
if it
bothered him
that
the city
had
cancelled
the annual fireworks
he
said
ain’t nothing
to
celebrate
this
fourth of july
won’t even
make
a good wake
for
a dying nation
a nation
with
an ever growing
body bag
count
bagging up
blacks
and
browns
those grown
and
those
who’ll
never
get to grow
shot dead
as they read
what a great nation we are
should have read
we were
and
when we’re done
bagging up
the nra’s
school lunches
we’ll starting
filling up the bags
with
botched abortions
or
young mothers
who died
giving birth
to
a child
demanded by
and
abandoned by
good christians
protecting
a moral code
written
on rice paper
promoted
by
demigods
of
greed
so please
don’t ask me why
i’m
not celebrating
or
upset
about
cancelling
a fantasy freedom event

more than 1 a week school shootings…

just below
the dark circles
of
our eyes
lies
the reason
for
hopes demise
another
child
lies dead
and
you
continue
to deny
your part
in
this crime
as well
as those
that have
proceeded
this murder
you
continue
like
some rabid dog
to foam
at the mouth
with
formulaic
justifications
so
the slaughters
unabated
move
from
state to state
while
you
promise
to do
everything
within your powers
to
remedy
the problem
except
to deal
with
the real
issues
but
you offer
your
sincerest
condolences
along
with
your prayers
to
a god
you do not
even
believe in

internal revenue code…

the brown bag prophet
was sitting
at
a park bench
working
furiously
to
fill out
some kind
of
form
he was concentrating
so hard
that
i
startled him
when
i asked
what
he was doing
once
he recovered
he said
i’m filling out
a tax-exempt organization complaint form
against
the
nra
for
any group
that
supports
directly
or
indirectly
the killing
of
our nation’s
children
needs
to be removed
from
the non-profit
tax exempt
category
along
with the removal
of all
those in government
that
support
the nra’s
assisted-murder programs
