National Poetry Writing Month – 4/18



“Just find a husband to support you.”
Well, a husband is why I’m in this mess. Sir.
“Find a way to get your life together.”
You, silver spoon, cliche. Sir.
“We’re not going to protect you. We have enough victims.”
So you’re going to continue to victimize us, sir?

I think that you should pack just your clothes in your car
Leave your wallet at home
Drive a thousand miles
Walk into a diner
And get your life together on tips
And by the way, if you get fired because of the person you love
We already have enough victims. Sir.

*based on remarks made by Jeb Bush
