Line So Long it Reached the 1980’s

February 28, 2013

drove past the food bank yesterday
it appears to be the only bank
to have not been bailed out

i could have walked by the food bank
yesterday
but then i’d not be burning
freedom’s gas

reflected in my rear-view mirror
i saw the long lines
i remember the long lines
the free powdered milk
the free government cheese

it sticks with you
it sticks in you
it can define you

you remember back when
you didn’t just drive by the food bank
watching the same goddamn long lines
from your rear-view mirror

i did drive by the food bank yesterday
it appears to be the only bank
to have not been bailed out
