Palestine

“Palestine” by David J. Thompson

 

When Father of the Year
is a Pipedream

Food stamps
have helped more men
than religion,
lets be
honest.

Politics
is as useless
as mascara
on a hippo.

And I shuffle by the men
out back the Salvation Army
in Kingston, Ontario
each morning.

Passing the smoke
like a hot
potato.

The basketball hoop
long broken.

Feeding the squirrels
from a large bag
of peanuts.

Black
and grey
and red

alike
