Endless Sky

Endless Sky

she ignited the horizon

ablaze in golden streaks

of promise that spoke

boldly of day’s end

as night snuck in upon us

covering the western skies

in blankets of twinkling stars

prodding us in wise,

ancient native voices.

what took you so long

to discover this spot

where you are?

our eyes shush their voices

as they wander wall to wall

beacons of lights across the

land of endless sky

Word-Up

The other day on CNN they were still corn shuckin Trumpy’s words apart from his speech trying to pander to the African American voters. Hunnies Trumpy ain’t gonna do this right by anybody unless there is something in it for him. Because he knew how low the support percentage goes for him with your support. So why would he offer up some solutions or talk to people in their own neighborhoods that he drives through and by in his limos?!? And if he did offer up something than he would lose his mostly white, effinA, “N” bomb dropping supporters. He can’t afford to lose his base because his supporters will whine about DT implementing another type of affirmative action because he would be putting your needs ahead of theirs.And they got themselves a jealous bone, dontcha know? Now, see Trumpy works from that scratch my back I’ll scratch yours mentality and since many aren’t supporting him he can at least say, I tried but they wouldn’t listen…and since if you are anything like me once I get into that voting booth, and I had to screen touch that name on the ballot, say for instance by accident, they’d be calling out the National Guard on me, because that voting booth would be turned inside out, tore up, slam dunked to the ground, expletives would be invented, chairs would be a flying cross the room before they’d get that accidently cast vote for him, they would have to get ta me first and I can scale ceilings like gut-damned spiderman….That alleged apology from Donald Trumpy was like someone who doesn’t send thank you notes fer all the shot-gun weddin presents they got & one day they run into you on the street & stumble through chit chat with you and begin the phony, thanks for the weddin gift of assorted gravy bowls and you say yer welcome cause you didn’t give them one, you only came fer the weddin cake, fer the love of no white man, greedy bastards stole my land sakes. His regrettins are upsettin because, sorry seems to be the hardest word. So how does that curdle the milk in yer cheerios today?—©g.a.meeder,2016®

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oink! Oink!

Oink! Oink!

arrogance under

spotlights that shine on faces

whereby make-up can’t

cover up blunders of men

squealing like pigs under oath

Guilt By Association

Guilt By Association

i carry your truths

with me even though you choose

to turn a blind eye

before you’d admit to them

making me an accomplice…

My Unlucky Charms

My Unlucky Charms

the sting of failure

not once but twice has become

a stigma that is

difficult to overcome

second time round is no charm

dangling from my imaginary

pandora bracelet.

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.

Pandora’s Box Blues Chaser

Pandora’s Box Blues Chaser

Old buckets of engine grease,

mouse droppings, shredded books

are swept up and tossed away

along with seven years rough roads

and some of the most turbulent seas

of small business woes

boxed, packed away amongst

dishes, books, coffee cups

with sincere hopes of

pandora’s box of shitty luck

be gone! no more!

next time you come knockin

peekin round our doors

there will be a deaf ear turned

almost guaranteed to your

all too familiar rappin and tappin

of bad luck blues

upon our door.
