Best James Marshall Goff Poems

+ Fav Poet


Across the great divide
We the people despair

Hearings in Congress
Public hearings

No public allowed
No press allowed

Homeowners, from Pennsylvania
To Texas

Told their drinking water is safe

While flames torch the water
Spewing from their garden hoses

There are no people anymore
Only billions of dollars
Choking our elected officials

There are no people anymore
Only controlled media

Regurgitating approved scripts
From a worldwide vault of lies

There are no people anymore
