Fascist Groove Thing

 

 

                              Your lifestyle

 

Your deficit

just looks greedy –

 

your piety – never so afraid

 

Even your honesty

is in vain – yeah, I said           even your honesty

is in vain

 

You wouldn’t know your own

reflection

 

if you were president

of these United States.

 

Don’t worry!

You can always

cross your heart

like a republican,                     say

 

it never happened!

 

                              is allergic

 

Maybe you get there before me.  The teacher

is talking.  You hear nothing.  Just space.

 

Outside

to the left, the window: the sun

 

is coming down in sheets, the trees

green with photosynthesis –

 

some music we played

growing up, head

 

for the window, like it’s Sing Sing, singing

we don’t need no

 

fascist

groove thing

 

                              to learning

 

Love is a stolen moment, when

the work is done.  Yours

 

is just stolen – each politic/policy

is a proposed medicine

 

for reality sick, yours

is just marketing.  You wouldn’t

 

need

to tell me what to think

 

if you weren’t

so afraid.
