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…

Fiery breath of God wipes the desert clean…
Eliminate the pestilence… Destroy the serene…
God does not speak English… Bombs don’t preach…
The only thing that matters is the curriculum we teach…

Whoever has the youth… Has the future…
Whoever breeds the most… Has the future…
Whoever kills the most… Has the future…
Whoever builds the biggest pipeline… Destroys our future…

How am I supposed to pretend… How do I deny…
Everything in politics is a big fucking lie…
I hate the commercials… Hate the constant knocks…
Personally… I vote based on the size of their cocks…

You laugh… But it’s just as relevant as what’s on tv…
Sit on the toilet and listen to your pee…
Splash into the voting pool…

Pool… Really… That’s all I am to you…
Of course that’s all I am…

To you…

A vote…
A record…

Well… A criminal record…

So… To the politicians… I say… Fuck you…

You don’t deserve my vote…
You don’t deserve my time…
You really don’t deserve…
My carefully worded rhyme…

But today you got it…
And as quickly as I wrote this rhyme about you…
I will forget you…

Today at work I am removing ivy…
Invasive… Like politics…

Ivy needs to stay the fuck out my yard…
Like politics need to stay the fuck out my house…
