DisSins

And yes once again

I had my nightmares

Of greed and power

But they weren’t mine

I simply facilitated them

By my own dis-sins

Of disinterest and disloyalty

Dishonesty and disturbance

Disprove disarm and disgrace

Distant dislike and disappoint

Aren’t we all culprits

In crimes we allow

By disavowing the disemboweling

Of our own countrymen

Stand up stand together

And always stand strong

Against those who oppress

Leaf

I knew a leaf

Once a magnificent leaf

I watched him bud

And yawn and shiver

On my favorite tree

He whistled in spring

And sunned in summer

He took great pride

In keeping raindrops off

Of hiding children beneath

But then Autumn came

And he grew tired

He lost his looks

And his boyish verve

One day while walking

I heard him ask

What’s happening to me

I looked up saying

It’s time to go

But you’ll be back

In the hearts of

Those who remember you

America

It’s with a heavy

Heart that I admit

That I am scared

Breakups are never easy

Yet here we are

Once had now gone

I will miss you

And what you promised

I did love you

But then you cheated

With the one that

You promised to avoid

You promised me that

Never shall we mingle

And yet you did

I should’ve expected it

Seduction is always sweet

Until the apple bitters

And it always does
