My muse is out of sorts.
Her bowls are bound by consternation.
The times are in an upheaval with
a murderous calling card.
Deception taints the government
and the disillusioned cannot stand.
Greed has eroded the economy
down to a manís last dime.
Hearts and flowers shrivel and wilt
under Lady Libertyís withering gaze,
while women unite to say, me too.

I'm just peachy Bluesy, just a little surprised at myself that I haven't written a piece on social injustice in a while. There is plenty of prompt out there to inspire something anti-hate and bigotry. Ya know,
chew on som'in bigger'n yer own backyard oncin' a while is good fer ya... ~L
