Poor Stewards



Cardboard box compassion,
canned love with a cadaver expiration date
Sub-contract the morgue delivery,
charge a mob fee that’s double the going vig rate
Profit from scapegoating the poor — 
Brand X the Depression Era entitlement hate 
Legislative death cargo transported,
collect a toll fee that’ll be triple the gouge rebate
Cubic Interstate road numbers
with a devil design ... 
dark Transformer souls cast asunder
Route 66: a six-finger sign —  
motorcade truck convoy plunder
Screaming eighteen wheelers 
rolling over poverty pavement: cement blocks six-feet under
Shipping tax subsidies to the rich,
giving them nothing but the best of the best
Sending slashed welfare to the poor,
we receive only the worst of the crop rejects
Taste the tainted meat,
swallow the spoiled dairy
Dump down dignity deprived mouths
Gov’ment-approved dietary sewer — 
rich grifter liquidity from piss poor stewards
Good Shepherd Jesus
fed the hungry poor faithful flock 
with golden honey poured from the Rock
Bad Gov’ment hussy Jezebel
sour breast feed maggot milk
to bloated baby bodies that ghetto dwell
Being born Black Bottom dirt poor 
in a harvest rich Egypt is so famine pyramid living dead
Federal Pharaoh money bow indoctrination says
it’s a raw propaganda feast for your malnourished head
Eat the putrid flesh,
drink the rancid dairy
Dump down dignity starved throats
Death-approved nutritional sewer — 
rich excrement policies 
from Capitol dunghill poor stewards

    WoW! Freddie, I share the same sentiment as the others below. This is a well written truthful and powerful message. Your ink needs to be shared with the masses. You are that good my friend. As always good job:-) Alexis

    Just when you think you've read the best from you...in comes another. I can't keep up with you man. This one - a brutally strong message. Awesome writer. Your stories should be in bookstores and on library shelves. Absolutely unique, with strong messages for the current times we exist in.

    Very emotional depiction as always, Freddie. I feel the contrast you paint in your poem...that has sadly become the norm for the poor. Unique theme!
