poetry by j matthew waters

the diversity of america

one too many distractions
and you’ll find yourself dead
just go ask any politician
you may have elected

how do you slice up
that which has always been split

how do you put together a puzzle
missing hundreds of pieces

the answer of course
is nobody gives a rat’s ass

since we were born here
we’ve gotten used to propaganda
that somehow this land is ours
fair and square

which of course leads
to the crux of the problem
fault lines continually changing
right along with the demographics
of an ever volatile populace

november two thousand twenty-two
