Is It Poetry

Veteran Poet - 3,090 Points (1958 - / Bus-Boys And Poets, Washington D.C.)

Radioactive Politics


As the economy gets again worse,
the far right wing Conservatives.
Spread fear and hate.

Shutting down bridges,
putting the young and elders in harms way.
Vengence is mine, Grudges are held.

Turning you against him and her,
your right to vote being taken away.
The more you hurt the more your,
neighborhood's should.

Did I not show you how to fish and feed your young?
Did I not stay,
to learn how to teach and put within reach,
pure reason for everyone.

Now be aware and as of now,
you have taken and taken,
to long from each other.
And even now,
have given your rights away.

Logic dictates that if your basic needs are not met,
you can not work for the man.

You grow fat watching T.V. and do nothing.
Cops, locked up raw, solitary confinment this pelican bay.
Out of control, law enforcement and Gitmo.

Unlike back then when I could not read or write.
I had to learn and now that I can.
I have once again in your face now placed them,
while you can still reason.
Unless you thrive on the suffering of each other.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
