Don’t Piss on Me (and Call it Rain)

Don’t pretend 

the sun


               If empathy


is not full of pain - 

do not


               is prophecy, and democracy


tell me

your political incontinence


               needs a schoolyard,


and impotence

have anything


               and demagoguery


to do

with anything - what’s your economic


               forms 


plan?  What a fucking

shame.  You won


               out of a need


because of us, not in spite of us, but your

pathetic


               to believe in something


outlook

can’t figure it.  Subject


               when the crops are dyin’,


popular

policies


               then don’t piss on me


to ruthless platitudes, 

and you, my friend,


               and call it rain.


will rue the day.
