frybread sonnet #016: TRUE URGENCY OF IRL NOW

The urgency of Now - the privilege to cool
out and make gradual change unavailable
to most, not just minority but most; old school
thinking was prosperity was attainable

for anyone willing to try, but the struggle
against mainstream American currents can be
overwhelming, drowning in an endless juggle
of what's most past due or pressing. Oh say can we

get ahead before body succumbs completely -
will my life cover my deductible? Fighting
to not choke behind this battle; suits sweetly
promise better tomorrows, these men inviting

my implied consent through vote for lesser of twin
evils born from same seed - will evil always win?
