On the State Level:
What is Freedom without Oppression?
Sunday liquor sales we don’t mention
Exclusive capital through resource retention
Taking the environment without apprehension
Marijuana is off the books because opiates pay pensions
Then we walk with hanging heads
Then we eat what we’ve been fed.
Paper collection friendships
Corporations part of a faceless community
But they have our president’s holy graces*
Existence thriving in high places so astutely
Their tree bearing tainted fruit
That is only being eaten by the ignorant and aloof.
As I am:
Taking the bus to work
Wearing same dirty old shirt
While not putting on airs
Not pretending unawares
Liars hold more account on the politician’s ear
Forsaken bent sinewy grotesque and clear, yet standing tall they still appear.
The trains roll through the station
But my Amtrak is late
Here’s to frack mines devastation
The passengers will wait
This one has been delayed
On to better days
Money rolls in, they can’t differentiate
But we must remain
Priorities not for minorities
A lesson in disgrace
Haven’t read the history
But what’s important before today’s date?
One could tell a story
And call it reality too
One could fly a sign
In hopes of attaining food
Desk sit forty hours
No wonder why I’m rude
Don’t count the flowers
Straighten up that rebellious attitude
This is local-
They appear global-
What about America?
What about global hysteria?
