Of Expired Prescriptions


Of Expired Prescriptions

there they are fleeing folly
disease, hunger, hopelessness

souls expelled from decency and peace
sons and daughters living like foundlings

as bigotry is foisted upon them like expired sedatives
as pretense steals the show from decency and empathy
