vance

jd told them

put down the words

just how it was

daddy got issues

momma more of the same

& we get passed on

from gramma to grandpa

kith to kin

blood to mud

those fine sentences

even made it into

the bestseller chart

but all those words

chiselled from sinew

never made it

to any heart

& you can say it

anywhere people got ears

truth to power

can’t break stone

because

nobody cares about

po’ white trash

living low
