front patio

it was a warm night

plenty of mosquitoes

both of us rocking in our chairs

smoking corn pipes

sippen on whiskey

Then all of a sudden

interruption of the current discussion

He started rambling:

“politicians

old timers you know

both sides of the aisle

no different

they own the narrative

rip people apart

black

brown

blue

green

white

many

follow

carve out core

What is left?

have a look

it is all just hollow

open wide and swallow”
