Beauty on Earth – by Brian A. Wilkins

April 30, 2020

Snow-capped mountains, majestic waterfalls,
A monarch butterfly, the coast of Senegal,
The Great Barrier Reef, an eagle in the sky,
Machu Picchu ruins, a monarch butterfly,

Love songs from the 80s, a tiger and cubs,
Abstract paintings on the walls of pubs,
A shiny gold nugget, a ballerina with grace,
A righteous loving woman with a smile on her face,

A child and their toys, a great white shark,
The zebras and giraffes at Serengeti Park,
A letter from a friend, trees glazed with ice,
Activists and advocates asserting civil rights, read more

The Mammon Malady – by Brian A. Wilkins

Some want money,
Some want sex,
Some want power,
To be corporate execs

Mammon is celebrated,
Piety is fraud,
Millionaires are heroes,
The poor need god,

Trump is MAGA,
Obama is saint,
Both are evil,
Benevolent they ain’t

People are wicked,
Malicious and vile,
It’s time to enlighten,
Not conform and beguile.

I have been manipulated, I’ve been caged,
None of the bullshit improved with age,
I expose dirty cops, I help those in need,

You sound too white, your speech too lucid,
We need more ghetto, we need more stupid,
Come be a liberal, join the GOP,
But you ain’t doing shit without one of us indeed,

A black man is chattel, a black man’s a slave,
He cannot be himself, just an insect in the cave,
Don’t love the white girl cause her dad hates your guts,
The black girl thinks you’re lame, a totally useless putz, read more
