Poesy plus Polemics

blame-it-on-the-moon-01-2 “Blame It On The Moon” by Nik Helbig

in a world of “because”
you don’t hear much of “me”
very rarely an “I”
but a whole lot of “they”
and a mouthful of “them”
it’s convenient ubiquitous sing-song
that’s patently bullshit
and even though everyone knows it
the words dance their crooked dance
making their here-and-gone footprints
all over the backside of truth
never seen by the squeamish
or like-to-be duped
yet it’s easy
so easy to call out the lie
any anyone
just has to open their mouth
and yell “Stop!”
all it takes is
some somebody somewhere
who cares to assert “I and me”
in a world of “because they and them”
