Thank you to those who support me via my Paypal account: rikwrybac@yahoo.com. Please consider sending one, two, three, or more dollars a month. I consider myself a "third industrial revolution" poet. My current income is just $1039.00 a month. I receive SNAP and energy assistance. I wish I didn't have to ask the government for help. The government doesn't read my poetry. You do. Out of over 350 poems here on this blog by me, I hope you find one or more you like. It's why I'm asking you for help. Thank you if you can help me monthly.

THANK YOU!

Illusions


Freedom:
Just because you can
walk to your neighbor's
for coffee
or take the kids
to Mt. Rushmore
can mean you are
wearing shackles

Choice:
Just because you can
go to the polls
does not mean
you have the right
to choose

Truth:
Just because you go
to church
can mean
you are
hearing a lie

Leadership:
Just because you
voted for your representatives
does not mean
your whisper in their ear
is heard louder
than the person
with a bigger checkbook

War:
Just because your nation
uses its power
does not mean
that children will be saved
or that the outcome
was not pre-arranged
