David S. Pointer- A Poem

Among The Unhired

Employment deprivation
unequally applied
throughout the society
to certain invisible
more likely to taste
Snakeslayer .45 lead
than lead a life thought
to be guaranteed by
their academic credentials
any small paycheck
could put one of these
people back in the bi-weekly
pressure chamber world
of low paid life, but some
have wives, or parents
or inheritances: others
fend off bottom level
boredom and stress by
sporadically hearing the
spray of bone spreading
bullets peppering their
dilapidated neighborhoods

Bio: David S. Pointer has recent acceptances at "Popshot," "Ottawa Arts Journal," and seriously misses "Beatlick News" since the passing of Editor Joe Speer.
