~✪- class of man -✪~


October 3 by The Running Son




~ class of man ~

stayed here for ya
I consider it my mission
I still steer the bus
understanding your position
turning fear to trust
I am making the decision
to stay here for ya
I am here for ya…

Oh Mr. President
All-American master-class man
handed a ballot but I had to pass
Vote hanging by a hanging chad
Are you a man, or a savior?
The baby in the manger?
The devil on my shoulder?
The money on the table?

Making small change with first world currency, keeping third world nations chained to tables labelled “maximum expendability”. A US tendency to react? why not ask Iraq about peace forces or masks worn by western troopers storming borders under mass orders, acting formal, grinning normal as the day they were born, a format forged on the backs of foreign attacks, informal water-boarding and manufacturing desert storms. The war-time math gets added and factored to death after body-bags are misreported and stacked, matter-of-factly and forlorn, back-to-back-to-back,

in corn-rows on the floor.

    Damn Jim, this is one of the best poetic tongue lashings I have ever read! You certainly “see” what’s happening on a level most are completely blind to!

    • I appreciate that Poetic! I dont do politics much, but when I do… I prefer it in poems. Stay thirsty my friend! hehe

      • ρöετις says:

        Hahaha nice! Yeah politics is a dog and pony show meant to diffuse and redirect the anger of the population and give the illusion of freedom and control when the reality is so starkly the opposite!
