poem of the day 09.04.14

little victories

side street
green lawns
lined with the
smiling visage
of a tax evading
who will probably be
into this american
meat grinder
for a third or fourth term
this fall
instead of going to jail
and there are
two cops
smiling in the
morning sun
writing parking tickets
to the sound
of beethoven’s third
as an old man
yells at them
his wife holding
the front door
screaming and crying
for his old
stupid ass
to get back inside
to let these
brave heroes
do their job
to let them
winning the war
on sanity
that this country
has declared
us all
