Political Hack

Political Hack

It’s as if you’ve been

advantageously

juxtapositioning

this unwritten law

before time even

churning those wheels

inside your ego driven head

collectively picking and choosing

which words are better sound bites

to speak well of only yourself

neglecting the forgotten

the newly dead

sinning by omission

you should be ashamed

but all you do is

cultivate and grow

a bigger head.

She Got The Blues

She Got The Blues…

dust particles whirl

in the sunbeams

through the glass windows

that are no longer

rose colored for us

reality came along

wearing the biggest pair ever

of shit kicking boots

that altered the course of time

kicking our coming of age virtues

to the curb on the streets

where we all lived

shaming us, for such naïveté

crystal clear windows of our souls

now cracked,

splintered,

broken

or auctioned off

to the first buyer, sold!

a weight so heavy

on her mind

so much so

she got the blues…

Condescension

Condescension

Please, do not speak in

that tone of voice

which would imply

that YOU sincerely believe

that you are better then I.

for I am a skilled in life ninja

who will take you down

for that reason alone

no lie.

Reckless Redemption

Reckless Redemption

I went back with the
weight of non-belief
upon my shoulders
hoping you could
bring me back
for a brief respite
so that maybe
I could
figure this mess out
somehow make it
all, alright.
until those reckless words
fell from your mouth
and I felt my soul crack
under the disbelief that
you would ever say such a thing
but you did, I heard them, we all did
and now you cannot take them back
your words have become
devisive, schismatic
and I refuse to play your fool
I will no longer be in attendance
to your wayward thought
of only the faithful school
so I, in turn on my heels
close the door behind me
giving flight to my feet
beating a path finding
my way the hell out
and never coming back.

Almost Prayer

Almost Prayer

the other day

I fell from my chair

right to my knees

and I thought

hell, how unfair

but if I’d possessed

a stronger faith

I might have seized

this moment

instead of grumbling

and saved face

and began to pray

but instead I got up

and kicked that 

godforsaken chair

picking up that broken mess

threw it right out the window

and yelled,

look out below here comes

my broken chair!

People scattered

for miles everywhere

and so would of,

I do believe

all of my,

almost prayers.
