Workers Sneaking Into The Zoo
Idiotic replies to my
pseudo suicidal emails
threatening to free Charles Manson
make Ted Bundy rise
like a bunny on Easter
put your money in the basket
while your children arm themselves with machine guns
to go to schools that you bought with your Mercedes
that you stole from workers sneaking into the zoo
past the hookers past men strung out on malt liquor
crack cocaine and poverty.
Why do people have to suffer?
Why do people have to hate?
I sit in the fancy bookstore now typing
on a laptop somebody paid for for me.
Why does Europe hate us
side with Pakistan in the Middle East?
I won’t tell any lies.
If you listen very carefully you will hear
Bob Marley whispering in my ear
drowning out the Saturday night conversation.
