(first pass) (second pass)

8 Nov

(first pass) glory

(second pass) gory

the tattered flag hangs limp

suggesting perhaps

something lacking

making the body politic

quite sick

(first pass) a smiling face

(second pass) a twisted grimace

sold as is

a pocket full of broken promises

if wishes could kill

we’d all be pushing up

reaching up

unable to breathe

nostrils filling with dirt

(first pass) full

(second pass) leaking

disappearing words

which once held promise

now nothing more than a lullaby

for a pack of zombies
