Insert Catchy Title for New Poetry Series Here


extremist rainbow threat
how shall we prepare?
money from Homeland Security
to coordinate land, sea and air

the rainbow threat is real
see that river over there?
there are rainbows in the water
so now we must prepare

by building infrastructure
with bonds and pretty words
be weary, extremist rainbow
of what you think you heard

the state of the state is great
the poor still have tv
except state-sanctioned color
is all they’ll ever see

—William Skink

    Ha! So you watched the State of the State? I didn’t.

    The scapegoat won’t go along
    we’ve already heard this song
    Jim Crow’s hate we won’t allow
    time to stand up and speak now.

    Monday night in the chambers
    love your Rep don’t be strangers
    grant request is based on lies
    let them know, look in their eyes!

    Friends and family let’s all go
    rock the boat row jimmy row
    Don’t let fraud become the way
    end Jim Crow right now today!
