Flowers Blum Turnip Red - Poem by Abraham Cumming

serious consideration must be taken
of situations
where only a small percentage
of the entire population

believe in a better future
or even
truth

its far easier to lie under a brute
and sweat
I once gave a shit- a quote
black and blue

i slept- hoping rape might undo
what nothing else could
that about does it- a quote
we- a quote
a quote
