Future Bothersome

a homespun letter-bomb mailed direct to every classroom

across the country would contain a handmade picture precisely folded to expose

a semi-automatic pistol projecting a handwritten banner unfurled

a faction of blood red words pitched atop yellow polyester

I practice love and We want a son But I can’t stand to raise one In a future So bothersome

Please shut your phones down And open your eyes

Put aside blind hate And sarcastics learned

Please plant your feet On the pavement firm

Lend an ear or Lift an arm

Will you risk to be Inspiration To a future Bothersome
