DRIVE-BY POEM

’95
. . . . . . . . . . .

It’s a tough cookie this Earth,
take a bite at your own risk,
six billion & counting &
we keep on coming!
(intended, of course!)

-Hey, man!
we hungry together, no?
Life is like that,
it can do that,
sometimes you go
from verse to worse.

Kids living & dying
on the streets,
hospitals closing,
pinkslips,
body bags here,
body bags there,
body bags everywhere!

-Hey, man!
we hungry together, no?
Life is like that,
it can do that,
sometimes you go
from verse to worse.

Slave labor, slave souls,
epidemics, helplessness,
fear & suffering…

-Hey, man!
we hungry together, no?
Life is like that,
it can do that,
sometimes you go
from verse to worse.

Who killed the great leaders?
Who killed José Blow?
Who killed the age of innocence?

Asesinos!

-Hey, man!
We hungry together, no?
Life is like that…

You already said that!

-But it can do that!…
sometimes you go
from verse to worse!
