    Who we are

    ARE WE?

    I don't wish to be

    Opportunity

    Gone South ~

    With an edict here

    A redneck's lair

    Uncle Tom

    In the big house

    Less a teenage rage

    On a Facebook page

    Like the war we wage

    NO DOUBT

    Killing brother man

    With our trifling aim

    In a prison built by louse

    Brother Poet 1poetsought,

    >>In a prison built by louse<<

    Not lice. Not one louse just by louse. Lines like that blow my mind. You sent me to the dictionary just to rethink how many meaning louse truly has. I love this piece and I don't even fully understand it. But then I am reminded it isn't always (especially with abstract poetry) about what a poem means but sometimes it is about how a poem means. This piece elicited a strong reaction from me. Thanks for sharing your remarkable work.
