My Anger May Rise Like Flies Off Horse Shit

Day 5 – A-Thing-A-Day

 

For W.

 

Hate breaks me.

 

And you drip with

wealthy sarcasm.

 

Laughing in the face

of those who need.

 

Oh, what you COULD offer

if you had only experienced

just a little bit of what we are-

the gardeners

the cooks

the drivers

the teachers

the soldiers-

those you step over.

 

Living in nonchalance.

 

Pretending we’re doing fine.

 

Turning away,

breaking into a grin,

making a joke at our expense.

 

So you can make

your next golf shot.

 

(Please use the back door on your way out.)
