is that a burning bush…

As Always- Charles and his thought-provoking, excellent poetry

Read Between the Minds

is that a burning bush

the brown bag prophet said
though
unemployed
for a number of years
i’m
unofficially
on
the graveyard shift
you see
those i have
loved
and
hated
are dying
the
obit column
has become
required reading
i keep looking
for those
my own age
that have entered
the invisible ink
section
of life
but
what bothers me
is
i keep
reading about
young people
offered as
corporate homage
to the bottom line
vis-a-vis
forced foreign aid
in other words
war
wars
to supply
the raw ingredients
for technology
like that
iphone
you’re holding
i’m
not
condemning you
i’ll leave
that
to the
scores
of
wars’
orphaned children
