Treasure Island

Is It Poetry

(1958 - / Bus-Boys And Poets, Washington D.C.)

The American Dream


Your poverty is their weapon of choice
black on white
state road yellow or brown
turned on each other their divide and
Conquer a militarism plan.

The lack of education for you what it means
an inability to articulate
a shortened life and love without hope
just what it means there here once
was
a good life
now being used to end all your dreams.

Injustice the key
the bedrock I see a house built on sand
washed out to the sea.

Social media your last bastion of hope
get out move and speak
always thus softly
the old grey Elephant the piñata a Donkey
both are the same.

A news channel made one that covers only politics
where every
Politician is heard
and there is made equal
where those with out millions
can go to converse
with you making a better choice
to select them.
