Star Spangled (what?)

It’s time to pick a side

(& the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air)

Someone said they shouldn’t have been there

(gave proof through the night, that)

Shouldn’t have been there, knee to neck

Shouldn’t have been, tear gas & flare

Shouldn’t have, knocked down head open & split

Sides picked in the havoc of spit

& fake twenty dollar bills, someone shouldn’t have been

There killed, someone who shouldn’t have been there

Stoking rage, black bible in hand upside down

(on the shore, dimly seen through the mist of the deep)

(where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes)

In dread silence

In dead silence

In dead

Someone shouldn’t have

Been there.

Run Fast Comrade

Run fast. The old world

is behind you. Corona

knocking on the front door.

Trump lye-ing out back.

Run fast comrade, run fast.

Bullets & bazooka guns

Strapped Up

It’s come to this COVID

the beach or bust (your hold on us)

Liberty civil or not

sick of your choke hold, we’re

strapping up, bracing

for the best, expecting

the worst. Get over

(yourself) Sit your ass

down.

Raging Riffs

James Panera’s review of the exhibition entitled “Riffs and Relations: African American Artists and the European Modernist Tradition” at the Phillips Collection is an interesting read if you like intellectual musings and “disses” by arm chair critics on derivative (blk) art – see comments. Sad to read (but not too surprised) that MAGA land and the white aggrieved can’t take a “high fa-lutt-en” pun. https://www.wsj.com/articles/riffs-and-relations-african-american-artists-and-the-european-modernist-tradition-review-intriguing-history-hits-a-sour-note-11584391554?shareToken=st2194824728e14eb5b2b7bbab11259a1c
