A House Divided

In
a house
divided,
nothing is added
nothing multiplies,
nothing ever grows:
when Chaos
is invited to lounge
on your couch,
and sleep
in your bed.

Where
'Bad News' refuses
to shower:
the toilet isn't flushed
and hands
are never washed;
because of attitudes that stink.

In a house
where Eviction gives notice:
Jealousy chooses Hate
to be stronger than Love,
as Anger and Hostility
argue:
about Nobody payin'
the rent.

In a house
divided,
Slander is served in the kitchen,
keeping family ...

Old Fool Me

a young fool
wanted to rob me
wanted all my
social-security $$$

my watch & ring
every thing

old fool me
went into my pockets
and gave all I had
to that young man

I guess
that young fool
has no need
for my wallet

while he’s
in the hospital
getting those ' bullets' taken out.

[Hata Bildir]
