cracks on the sidewalk
there is money for endless war
money to put immigrants in detention forever
and keep kids in cages
money rolling over money rolling
from sea to shining sea
in the hands of greedy pigs
money flying over broken neighborhoods
at thirty-thousand feet
a gilded carbon imprint
money for alarms
for gated communities
so they don’t have to deal with the peasants
dark money to be made off of elections
lobbying dollars suffocating the constitution
money to keep nutbags
up to their stomachs in firearms and fat
but where’s the motherfucking coin
to fix this crack on the sidewalk?
the one that cost me ten bucks
when i tripped over it
and dropped my bottle of wine?
its blood-red bounty
swirling right into the sewer
and gone forever
where’s the money for that america?
because it sure as fuck
isn’t sitting here in my wallet.
