The Man Who Kissed Hands

legs

 

The man

who kissed

hands found

those hands empty

 

Palsied hands

on the road

Attempting to repay

student loans

 

People like us

Nothing is handed to us

And the man who kissed

hands will make sure of that

 

Childcare

Healthcare

College

Shit, paying the water bill

 

Forgo vacations

Forgo new cars

Forgo going out to eat

Forgo going to the doctor

 

The man

who kissed hands

will convince you

he is working

 

in your best interests

while he undermines

the common good

While he turns

 

the middle class

against the working

poor and the working

poor against the poor
