a poem by Joshua Brown
Built to drive the broken masses
Bus around their helpless asses
Stupid drivers make a pittance
Loser guards allowing sit-ins.
Fateful epic sights 'round town
Out a window mirrored clown.
Pray for guidance from this mess,
Drugs and demons full of stress.
No more money, no more men
No more happy childlike frens
Only danger, only broken folks
People lost in sarcastic jokes.
Surreal to see the putzing NPCs
Mill about in the chilly breeze
A child alive to them is killing
Prodding, poking all glass ceilings
Free me from this strong addiction.
Show not grim prophet prediction:
For I am not one of these who walk.
I am alive, I am alive, my tongue talks.
Awake from dream, the demons
Their laugh jars. My wake begins
Hello to oft laughed at pain inside
Goodbye mammalian tribal pride.

Thanks for reading "These Who Walk" it was written here in Aurora, CO while riding the Union Station train on November 27 in the year of our Lord 2022. I'm happy with how it turned out and I would love to hear what you got out of it. Let me know down below! Of course, if you prefer you can comment on Facebook, Telegram, Minds or tag me on Twitter. I'd also love to see some dramatic readings on places like YouTube, Rumble, BitChute or Odyssey! That would be cool.
My last poem was actually about Thanksgiving. It is entitled "Countdown to Thanksgiving" and yeah, it's just a celebration of this year's friendsgiving I got to celebrate with some really cool people. Also here's a short story to get you in the holiday spirit: "Christmas Time."
I'd love some support. It would mean a lot to me, currently I run this site as a blog on the Blogger platform so the only real expense I have is the domain name. But I'd love to fund a poem collection IRL someday, so if you're interested in supporting what I'm doing with the content here, please donate! And of course, I also have to recommend you checking out the photographers on the Pexels site, many of them accept donations as well! Spread the love y'all.
You can support me on PayPal, CashApp, Venmo, with bitcoin or just send me cool stuff at my PO box!
