11 Nov 2015 – Veterans Day

Walking on water,
or snowboarding sewage?
Taking on troubles
men love like appendages.
Talking feels better,
but no one is listening.

Only a Boomer
would war against nature –
sing all you want to,
the undertow’s winning,
too much invested
to pull down the pyramid.

Try all you want,
shit will never roll uphill.
Leaves chase down back streets
and nobody stops them.
Even the rain seems
to mock me this morning.
