Biden, Unbidden –

You can have the stars

in a cloudless sky,

 

but you can’t

have it both ways.

 

You can have the sun

after a storm,

 

the neighbors

out on their front porch

 

coming and going,

but can you

 

absorb pain?  Your realism

is unheroic, and worse,

 

blind.  The economy

you guys grew up with

 

is gone.  What happened?! 

Corrupt corporate power

 

inhabited the language

of civil rights.  Even unions

 

went silent, under “Right to Work”

laws.  Public campaign finance

 

through “Citizens United.”  They all

smoked a drug, then used it to terrorize

 

black people, calling it “Violent Crime Control

and Law Enforcement.”  You underwrote

 

this story, and still

don’t see the irony.  I couldn’t

 

call ya dumb, so you must

be greedy.
