Free Speech Brand Of Scarlet Letters Rant


Part 5


Why did I give up my home and put things in storage

That I believed that it was a sign from someone upstairs.

How on a poetic budget did hippie hair become patriotic

In the face of one of the greatest Liberal-ators of America?

I look like a $100 bill that makes cents in being this spectacle

Where no one wants to see a wrinkled weathered live Franklin

They want the greenback one that they treat Conservatively.


Oh how I seek solace in 24 hours of sleep

That it is better than living in this progressive reality

That America is being destroyed from within

That America has become a human god Blessed Demigod

That puts God’s individual compassion into lower letters.


Oh Moses, set me free from enslaved termination.

Can an Alabama have pity on a Ben Franklin doppelganger

To ask a Germany Goliath to set David free?

Unshackle him from a Terminated for Poetry noose

That keeps tightening in making life feel so worthless

That like America we must surrender to CEO rule

But a poet screams N.U.T.S.

N)ever U)nder T)yranny S)urrender

Give me Freedom and Democracy

Not like Egypt has now

But like a 1776 Revolution.


Destroyed devastated

One cries in how one feels

To have German American Scarlet Letters

Feeling the “hollow cast” gloom in an

Invisible America’s prison

Swallowing one whole

In sheets of depressions.
