Poem: I Want My Tax Checks

This piece is a poem submission from Kamau, a 25 year old resident of St. Thomas.


Calculating hours of arduous nights gathering

Existential crisis overcoming utilitarian renegades seizing this election

Narrowly ostracizing political war

Outpacing Independent Republican

Failure that operates local Legislature takes oaths willfully

And

Neglects everyone and xeroxes Trump’s

Mastered advancements positioning takes power

Observe as the Republic/Can deduce or form the tricks

Ruining Independents’ already damaged reputation

Change Course Now, or Follow a Next Mapp

In-between you see the greed, trapped within the seams

Stronger and Better…at least for Kenneth’s Mother
