MLK DAY

Martin Luther King Day. They sing, they
Write with the tip of a sting ray
A wing of clay suddenly grew feathery
Peeping the lettering
The phone’s connection
Wireless tethering

Martin Luther King Day, they sing, they
Fling faith at apostles like feces
The monkey’s paw
The donkey saw
The monkey in awe
And from the height of Earth’s atmosphere
A crow did caw

Martin Luther King Day, they sing, they
Holler propaganda out a think tank
Think blank. Sink. Sank.
A Chink. Che
Guevara kissed Martin
Across the room I was darting
And told no one
I was departing
