Wednesday's Song Was Wrote On A Thursday...

.

That makes it perfect for this week,
a sorry seven days that saw Society
die
by a  few more agonizing inches,
a week where
people
were asked to shoot opposing
points of view
people
were asked to ignore
the alternatives
people
were asked to pay
for their lives
people
weren't given
a choice,
people
were told to pick
or be shamed.
People on TV
told us
that's how it is now,
people
said "this is so?'
People on TV
said "yes, it is so,"
people
asked "why, how?"
People on TV
said
"This is the way it has always been."

Children napped,
cats ambushed bugs
and
each other;
the rains still brought little relief.

A poet sat down to write
and couldn't think of one
decent sentence the entire
time.

So Wednesday's song
was wrote to you
on a Thursday.

There's no other way
it could be.
