April 21, 2015 – poetic thought on the current Dyson/West kerfluffle

ghost stories can be very sad
when pain and hurt are just beneath
the superficial fright and scare –

we all know it ain’t about the storyline –
the plot is merely, purely incidental –
that the real game being played
is that we all got played

but hey, it’s cool –
as Mahalia would say, “that’s just
the way it is down here.”

you can be a tool
in the great game of 2016 –
but don’t be no fool,
‘cause poetry will find you out.

  1. I like when you say(write) things unexpected you to say (write) and how do you mix it with “serious” themes. e.g. in this poem, the line: “but hey, it’s cool”.. i would say, from the 3th stanza to the end. Soft vs heavy. I don’t know how to express it better.. It is also tender. I loved it!
