Douglas Polk- Two Poems

The economy

no longer about the numbers,
if it ever was,
politicians emphasize race,
more brown or black people,
than white,
idle hands collect the government benefits,
operatives secure the votes,
while most people toil to pay the bills,
the Obama economy,
payback for slavery,
and the crusades.

Beneath the Myth

reality warped,
in search of coin,
thoughts and emotions,
tools to manipulate,
reality viewed in thousands of ways,
boardrooms and ghettos,
scratch and claw,
time precious,
before the cameras,
and microphones,
with the whores and sluts of the media,
both female and male,
the reality already bought and paid for.
