Promises Not Kept
                                            by Chuck Keys

As leaves flow in the breeze,
Change.  Peanut butter needs jelly.
Water can taste dry - alone effortlessly.

Color is a difference.  Superficially superficial.
A little boy lives without ... - Fearful. Tearful.
Cold without a roof.

My mommy isn't home,
Job searching in disguise.  No. Heatless 
And brrr, cold smiles ... anger heartache.

Daddy, what daddy?
TV was stolen, again.
Willy got cut up, bad.

Spend money on me, not war,
Nothing changed since Martin
Why? I'm hungry. Oneness.
