Different truths

October 9, 2017

You want to know
What really happened
The objective truth
Of the subjective scene
Transpiring before your eyes?
The objective truth
Was lost in the subjective
Truths of those who
Actually partook in
What you laid witness to
And objectively speaking
They live in very different truths

There used to be a time
When the news
Told stories
Of good fortune
Of luck and hope
Of peace and dreamers
But now it’s just
Pain, misery, anguish
And a healthy side
Of death and despair
What happened to
The good old days
Of greener grass
And softer meadows?

Why even bother to
Put on a smile when it’s
Clearly not for real

The darkness
It slips in
I think
I can be

Keeping down

October 5, 2017

It seems to be
Once a week
That I stop
And really think
About what happened
So long ago
About what is wrong
With my old brain
About the pain
Rooted so deep
And about why
I keep it down.

Kings and Queens

October 4, 2017

I wish it were a year ago
And things had happened
I wish the Democrats
Would have voted
And left our neighbor
Out of misery
But alas the orange clown
Sits in his white Castle
And the Jester reigns as King.
Why couldn’t they’ve accepted
A queen?

That sneaky Sun

October 3, 2017

There is this picture
In my head
Of a dog
Chasing the sunset
As if she wants
To play
For just 10 more minutes
So she runs and runs
Deep into the night
Only to discover
The Sun chasing her.
