on Parade..


WHEN DO THEY ASK?.. 'is everyone against me?'..

WHEN DO THEY ASK?.. ‘is everyone against me?’..

‘On Parade in the shade shining opal moons.. poles with roles exhibit goals.. dance heavy beat tunes.. some look young.. some really are.. some half plastic smile.. with the whitest teeth there.. while groomers make a pile’..

On stage kids.. pimps lay their bids.. ‘come work money wise.. they will buy what we ply.. even when we lie.. decorate that deal.. you buyers.. ‘Look a Christmas Tree’.. as immigrants deny a law protecting them and me..

Coyote takes what was in Mexico or will remind.. those who left violent times.. to find a peace in kind.. wives.. daughters to garment district where they lay the land.. as husbands lie about what they know and understand..

My world finds a peaceful way.. our garden planted well.. tended so in honor.. people ‘buy’ more than they ‘sell’.. cannot live another’s dream.. they care not for your grief.. survivors on relief.. the lesson.. ‘never trust a thief’.. 

Thought.. ‘as (illegal) immigrants try to find a better life.. some deny protection of the law.. a romantic image of the ‘Desperado’ in mind.. while their new ‘bosses’ and supposed ‘advocates’ praise them.. 

as ’employers’ half step.. and ‘citizens’ turn away in the face of living rights violations.. the guilt.. of course.. is used to solicit ‘passes’ for religious.. social organizations.. as well as folks who just plain care for others..

it is obvious to me.. some times folks turn from their own decency.. because they did not honor what they knew to be right.. their ‘false pride’ does not allow them to see their folly.. denying any error for they ‘must be perfect’..  

mayhap their product is ‘counterproductive hiding places’..   🙂



About cryinforthedyin

I write philosophy and poetry. I postulate solutions for problems..I find similiar things in history to compare to present day, hoping to find a solution to the seemingly difficult task of giving and receiving love. I play music. Blues harp, piano, guitar, electric and acoustic. I sing..I love to sing..Peace Tony
