DEATH ROW SAN QUENTIN – DONALD RAY YOUNG– FALL GUY

By Donald Ray Young

Fall Guy

What would it take
to heal and not kill?
Maybe I could
formulate a pill

I’d make it
real,
Donald Trump and imperialism
would have no zeal

Cease attacks in the Middle East
Put an end to this
horrid beast
Fallen soldiers, rest in peace

There’ll be no more combat
Dress the wounds
Infliction pierce
mind and body

McDonaldization
controls the nation
Super – sized
inequality feeds me

The great debate
All – time greatest orator
Speak your mind
First Amendment right

Who rolls the dice
for the undercaste,
the lowest
of the lower class?

Snake eyes,
What a surprise.
Would you like an order
of the bean pies?

I can only imagine
your staunch reply
as we look above
to our resentful sky

Don’t worry…
I’ll be the Fall Guy.

    Donald it’s wonderful that you are able to put your emotions to writing. What a mix of emotions that gave me. Thank you for sharing this for everyone to read. Roberta

    Sadly there are people who are the” fall guy”. There should not be someone who takes the fall. This is the way of the world, but not my world.
