poetry by j matthew waters

rolling back the future

having the right to remain silent
perhaps is exactly what
the powers that be
actually want

here in america
the silent majority is stocking up
while the insane minority
continues rampaging
on an ongoing basis

the rise in inflation
is not slowing down sales
of smith & wessons
neither is it preventing the poor
from getting poorer

here in america
human rights
& civil rights
have taken a back seat
to electric vehicles
the gas-powered ones
converted into mobile homes
or turreted weapons

april two thousand twenty-three
