CAME BACK FROM ROME

Walking the river
Maidens and their dogs
Water taxis going up and down
The homeless too occupying benches to keep their cool
Jasmine trees in full bloom
Don’t kowtow to a person
Bow to a King
Be a yes man in another man’s dream
Authoritarian, another word for Dictator
Happens in the blink of an eye
One day you’re free, next day you die
I can’t tell you the truth
I wear a red hat just like Trump
My grandfather came here with ten dollars in his pocket
The American Dream turned inside out
You can’t prove God doesn’t exist
“Tear down this wall,” or build one to keep people out
Walking the river
Maidens and their dogs
Water taxis going up and down
The homeless too occupying benches to keep their cool
Jasmine trees in full bloom
Came back from Rome
From where all things come
