young dove hatchlings fly
dropping fresh oppressive shit
old man hate rehashed
old man is not referring to existing older people, even if in some cases it is applicable.
smoke screams fill the car
reapers ride the bullet trains
last stop terminal
recent current events in NY had me back looking thru my reaper collection .
the NY attack was not a reaper event.
i changed the 1st line from [dead screams fill the car ] to it's current form .
the old fleabag stared into his cup
ever since he was a drowned runt pup
watching it runneth over empty
in a land where bones were a plenty
yet banks wouldn't let him dig any out
so he chewed off a leg to save his snout
stole a bath to sail troubled waters
tempted by neptune's buried daughters
the fleabag growled just my boneless luck
as he paddled in circles till stuck
a passing whale gave a farewell wink
as he pulled the plug out of his sink
willo the wisp dies
in a forest of statues
felled by mocking rocks
authorz notes -
its about following the light shinning out our own arse into danger (our own insecurities) .
not support for the will smith act of violence perpetrated on chris rock.
the event that prompted this poem.
