soapbox

2 Sep

something seems to have happened to my

soapbox

it is ugly, rickety, and full of splinters

the McGovern for President sticker

is faded to the shade of a long ago morning

when anything seemed possible

now

my throat has grown sore from shouting

my face shows the lines of a life

upon the barricades

i search for simple truths these days

that may gently nudge

the revolution into an evolution

and i might get me some sleep

dreaming of a change
