Miss Rosie – Lucille Clifton

when I watch you
wrapped up like garbage
sitting, surrounded by the smell
of too old potato peels
or
when I watch you
in your old man’s shoes
with the little toe cut out
sitting, waiting for your mind
like next week’s grocery
I say
when I watch you
you wet brown bag of a woman
who used to be the best looking gal in Georgia
used to be called the Georgia Rose
I stand up
through your destruction
I stand up

– Poem Hunter

The People & Men At The Top

Happening somewhere under the sun

In a country where there’s no sun

No hope

Nothing but INJUSTICE

That had eaten all its sons & daughters

Citizens receive a message via RADIO

& through all MEDIA

To tighten the belts around their bellies

To put their hands over their throats

To keep their mouths shut

But they can KEEP BREEDING!

That’s the only thing allowed for them

TO HAVE SEX & BREED!

After all we’re an EMERGING DEMOCRACY,so they say ,& PEOPLE CAN’T BE DENIED THIS SIMPLE PLEASURE!

Millions are laid off from their jobs

Thousands die of DISEASES,HUNGER & ILLITERACY

But the MEN/PEOPLE AT THE TOP

Don’t care

They go to best hospitals & universities around the WORLD

& SO DOES ALL THEIR LOVED ONES

& THEY SAVED BILLIONS FOR THE RAINY DAY IN HIDDEN ACCOUNTS EVERYWHERE

One of them had just gave jobs to all his relatives

Their babies spend their vacations in the BAHAMAS

& you my brothers & sisters the best you can do is to”Sit in a mega size bucket filled with water pretending you too,got your little BAHAMAS

While your wife was prevented from delivering her baby at the hospital

Because you got no enough money

They & all those linked to them deliver their OFFSPRING’S in AMERICA & EUROPE

Do shopping there & in the GULF

Why do they & everyone around them got another CITIZENSHIP?!

Because (They can’t afford to carry THIS MISERABLE POOR CITIZENSHIP )

& WHEN THE BOAT SINKS

THEY WILL LEAVE US

& GO TO THE OTHER COUNTRIES THEY CARRY ITS NATIONALITIES!

THEY WILL LIVE IN A MERRY LIFE IN THE PALACES THEY BOUGHT EVERYWHERE

& SPEND THE BILLIONS THEY KEPT IN SECRET PLACES

Oh forget to mention,while you are laid off,die of disease, hunger,& illiteracy

They see no shame even in spending hundreds of thousands of EURO on their haircuts,expensive shoes,suits,perfumes, watches & more!

But orders are orders & everyone must obey the leader

After all that what’s done in Emerging Democracies,DICTATORSHIPS,& EVERY OTHER DEMOCRACY!
