Recession Is Coming! Recession Is Coming!

A New View


The town cryer is unheeded

because her clothes are unwashed

and her hair filled with lice. Her sign

reads look at me, this is you soon.


The last one was twenty years ago.

An entire generation grew up age one

to drinking age with sufficient time

in an atmosphere paid for by perpetual

war and the deaths of other nations.

Marijuan is legal for a reason. High,

you cannot concentrate.


The town cryper is saddened

as the police harass her and take

away her cardboard sign that upsets

passers by. Still, a dry throat

whispers the words, "Payback

is coming. I have seen the light!"
