Sparkle Horse

this animal will race no more
put out to pasture
standing at stud
his trophies and ribbons bear
a testimony
serve as a memory
of what he once did
how much he was worth

but you think that today
you will run him a bit
get him lathered up,
and make sure his heart
still ticks the way it should

he still serves a purpose
and it would be a tragedy
if you wore him out
but it would be a sin
if you just let him rot

We, The People

political tailors keep us naked and starving
vested interests are like suits
with two pairs of pants
one grey
one herringbone
there can be no black or white
there can be no straightforward pattern.

pentagonian pimps turn democracy
into a whore. A kept woman
who answers only to
her keepers. Every day
she looks more like
lady justice-
blinders in place.

the shining star of freedom has
developed a curious green patina
and a fishy odor
you grow old and your sense
of smell fails
is that stink from the right
or the left? alas, it isn’t
behind you yet.

stand in line to register
stand in line to choose
vote your rightful conscience
then deposit your ballot
and flush twice, it’s a long way
to florida.
