Lexington Poetry Month Day Ten

La Peste

Absurd realism
religious rats feed on fear
of paper tigers

Save profits cut lives
greedy ticks gather gold from
the teachers classroom

Wealthy plagues our poor
gentrified inner city
while farmlands poisoned

Democrats are just
closeted republicans
both dancing on graves

The new Pied Pipers
in golden pockets
living on decay

A grim fairytale
where children die, cry and starve
as bloated rats gorge
