they tell me eyes dead

they tell me eyes dead
scanning the crowd
like they were taught to do
I listen to my constituents
well honey that’s your job
i’m meant to throw a fish?
i’m tired of being fed
my own wise words
by this freeloading fool
hair & clothed just so
by their personal aide
the people
are years ahead
of plump politicians
in what it takes to bump
grind along together
in this hand to mouth life
we know drugs aren’t always
bad for you
the cop is not our friend
that in fifty years
we will be forgotten
& their politics game will
continue to roll on
just give us what we need
without a it’s a for you
your own good ceremony
except the hanging
we don’t want that
maybe we’ll save that
for you
