Is It Poetry

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

Yesterday I Was


In court for a restraining order violation
my sister initiated.
You see, I later found out the two my
ex-wife and her has slept together for some time
in the proximity of my then young daughter.
(a note to myself don't beat anyone up)
It's deeper than you think no other man.
I must remain unbiased
and let the other's marry whom they are.
Prejudices I would suggest abound my daughter.
The Sheriff ran her off from my home.
Where they were together.
He the sheriff is now a congressman.
Meanwhile I never found my mind.
When most think it normal or you wouldn't
on t.v. watch it.
Jerry Springer or Judge Judy because you do
think it normal which is light
and never dark.
They wouldn't be on the telly if you didn't.
I don't doubt that to rant wouldn't help it.
I suspect I am to blame for her failing twice
she's only ten.
I left her mum when she was three about home values.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
