13 1/2 – Another Star Falls

"Sunshine and the Solstice" - Frick Park - Pittsburgh, PA - The first glimmer of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day... Winter Solstice... It wont be long now before Spring awakens...

“Sunshine and the Solstice” – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA – The first glimmer of sunshine on an otherwise cloudy day… Winter Solstice… It wont be long now before Spring awakens…

This has been sitting in my notebook for a few weeks now… I revisit it every few days… I considered not publishing it due to language concerns… But the more I read it… Well… The more I like it…

Another star falls…
Falls from the flag and crashes into the earth…
Missouri burning… Misery ends with a peaceful ideas birth…

Before we can think we take off and run…
Just us… The cops… God and a gun…
Under a blood-red sky we bolt to the east…
Anyone who runs is considered a beast…

We are all thought of as the general public…
One god… One judge… Twelve jurors… Fuck it…
We are all considered public enemy number one…
Freedom is relative… Freedoms price is a gun…

Another man falls…
Falls from the throne and crashes into the streets…
Missouri’s heart is beating… Misery ends in mental defeat…

Riot in the city against the military machine…
Soon a tax-funded rain will scrub the streets clean…
Riots or looting… It doesn’t matter what you call it…
The only thing that matters is if you vote with your wallet…

Keep your nose clean… Keep your mind wide open…
Keep away from those who never stop coping…
13 1/2… That’s one judge… Twelve members of the jury…
And the half percent chance of walking free without a worry…

"Next to Go" - Dumpster Joes house... Slated for demolition...

“Next to Go” – Dumpster Joes house… Slated for demolition… A monument to blight…

Today’s news is shipped to our chairs…
Relevance based on Justin Bieber shares…
World wars based on the tone of a meme…
Bit coins used to fund a government regime…

Terrorists in a cave watching Miley Cyrus…
If not for the taxes our government would fire us…
The cops will always be just bully’s with guns…
Shooting at anyone that gets scared and runs…

Defend the law till the law comes looking for you…
Say the wrong words and charges stick like glue…
A fair and just trial is just what they’ll call it…
Innocence aside it’s the depth of your wallet…

Twitter and Facebook will be used like tools…
Military’s will use them to recruit the fools…
Cops will use them to eradicate crime…
The government will use them to reverse time…

About the only right I can really kinda see…
The right to claim that we are supposed to be free…
We claim the civilians could rise up and fight…
Yet they still suppress us with recessions and blight…

They cut human benefits and then take a raise…
Live in a mansion while the poor people praise…
Each and every one of us are just federal toys…
Our minds are washed while we are just girls and boys…
