Something old

Leave a comment

Reaching again into the writings of my early youth to share something from a long time ago.

DELINQUENTS

 

I begged

At your doorsteps

For food,

Your dogs licked my sore.

 

I knocked

At your offices

For jobs,

Your keys shut my door.

 

I prayed

At your altars

For salvation,

You called me a bore.

 

I romped

In your presence

For escape,

You urged me “romp more.”

 

I discovered more than Columbus

In my history,

Explored new grounds

Of my story

 

With others, my kind,

I grabbed back my mind,

Got your gun,

While you run

 

I shoot to halt my fleeing self.

You do not repent,

You just shriek

Oh God, a delinquent!
