Government Accident








Words subtle as a car crash
Jagged metal and broken glass
Smoking engine sound of sirens
Spilling blood and gasoline

Can’t U turn with steering busted
Junkyard dreams dented, rusted
Drunk driving drama; bourbon breath
Under influence of life and death

The government of our society
Has failed the test of sobriety
No future for elderly or poor
Just crush them down a little more

Politicians going nowhere
Conversations but they don’t care
Sobriety tested and put to blame
Government wreck bursts into flames

No tickets for their total lost time
No sentence from these guard rail rhymes
That jumped the curb and hit the sign
Reading STOP as the poet scribbled these lines
