Man in the black sedan,
the furious crowd bellowing
only a single tainted window against a tempest
They and us
us vs them
the real culprits in the shadows laugh.

Puppets always took the heat,
the blame, the hate,
I remember one, the kindest man
withdrawn too much by fellow “friends”
tossed to wolves,
ate by lions,
never a single soul looked behind.

It must be him! they scream
or darn picketers!
pick a side, you’ll never find the right
or the wrong–
they know people–
No one digs with obvious truth

and so they stay behind the curtains
licking butter off their fingers chuckling,
what an easy game,
what such fools we are.

deadbeats aren’t we?

those french fries
salted
golden crisp
we ain’t so golden now.

where’s the prism
behind the rain,
once colors glistened
now to gray.

We are indeed
the hollow men–
the hollow women,
the hollow kids.

matter without matter,
silent forms of
wasted flesh.

Spare me your politics,
a nickel never paid a meal,
our body needs feeding,
the mind dies
quickly,
if you’ve never held the globe,
I beg you–
retire,
hollow mistakes
never touched the brim.

Hope is a fool

we nod our heads in vain,
we walking shadows by day.

I imagine by referendum,     you exclude us,
What are we, to be exact?
Must lack of experience correlate to lack of knowledge?
I beg to differ–
Time has never driven in reverse–
this is our world as well,
and if      nature stays its course,
Our dreams and fears should come before the old,
We are…..aren’t we……..the future      You?

Come, jump off your high horse,
what do you know of us?
I imagine your decisions are for the better cause,
How can you without our dreams?
And when finally we become you too,
we should know very well      too well,
Rulers never rule the right time,
Time moves, trends die, what was will fly away.

Pardon us sir,      have we snarled too much?
Excuse us underdogs,
We have no manners in this matter,
Lead on, protect the past
let the future wreck,
let us swallow your leftovers–

Children always did what they were told.
