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


plan?  What a fucking

shame.  You won

               out of a need

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


               to believe in something


can’t figure it.  Subject

               when the crops are dyin’,



               then don’t piss on me

to ruthless platitudes, 

and you, my friend,

               and call it rain.

will rue the day.
