The American Standard (2/30)


The prompt for day two over at NaPoWriMo was to write a poem that tells a lie...this is what I came up with...




Poverty 
is paradise
as the 
rich get poorer
and no child 
is left behind
who buys 
$300 dollar sneakers
to show the world 
he exist.


Gun
violence
happens only
in video games,
racism
disappeared
with the
election
of a
brown skinned
Commander & Chief
while
gentrification
displaces
no one.


It's 
hard work
not who you know
that helps you 
get ahead;
 just ask
politicians who
always
represent 
the interest
of common people 
because there
truly is liberty and
justice for
all.
