a little poem
the lady weeps away her life
lost one cold night
when nothing added up to less
and the streets of looking like
led down a trail of lost years
an envelope, a wasp sting
incompetent attorney if she was unlucky
the law is the law...
and I AM THE LAW
thank you, mr rockefeller
for your pious and punitive ideas
it's almost envious, you know
to know that some with wealth
can sweep so many away
on pretense of the good of all...
would the path strewn with
perhaps find a way to haunt
you too high in the sky?
safe behind bars - in the country
a different sort of country club
with cashmere sweaters and silk ties
in place of coarse cotton and cement
thank you, mr r, thank you for misery
