The Arlington Poems

The Arlington Poems excerpt

it’s not that bad
don’t shoot
a small misunderstanding
we don’t see it that way
you’re always screeching about something
we disagree
don’t rock the boat
nobody told us
you can’t save everyone
at least you have a place to live
things are better now
don’t ask
it’s not fair
state “people” need not apply
the haves and have nots
we’ll get back with you
don’t explain
we’re already working on a plan
I’m sure it wasn’t intentional
it’ll never happen again
you’ve got it made
