Ferguson (poem)


It’s about authority without accountability.
It’s about the unacknowledged class structure of America.
It’s about battle lines being drawn between rich and poor haves and have-nots.
It’s about taking cigars from a convenience store by brute force because you can.
It’s about the loss of morals and ethics by all classes.
It’s about entitlement and about everyone being a winner.
Well everyone isn’t a winner, everyone doesn’t have a point, in fact
most of the population is clueless unless you happen to ask about Survivor or
The Voice or those implanted beliefs provided by the endless thirty second spots
because that’s what it’s about.

Kenny A. Chaffin – 8/19/2014
