aDayAfter...aNationalHolyDay /  just waiting for a quiet end

the shitshiny Memorial
rhetoric reliefingly
done [for a few rewhitey bleu
weeks til faux gunshots cannon booms
join the gr'ill flesh searin cell'bration
for nations sickest freedumb ego)

aye go in irony(butt unshackled) for
prearranged saxOtonal visit to
local slick new veteran's home

hear amazing sounds of war-chaos booming----
old b&w glory war movie on the bigscreen TV,
       but no'one, no body in th'room,
         not-a-soul 'watching'....

a joke? i'preciate th'humor of it !

my 1940vintage ugly tenorsax & I play for 30some
old fellas & 1 woman, mostly in wheelchairs, ranging
from maybe 60 to 90+ yrs old....

'I'(eye) do not see amerika as beautiful...all ficticious,
   agenda-laden, scam ririddled 'history', veiling
a vicious bloody, ego'agenda of[of]of selfserving brutality---
   (again, I digress)....
I start out wit a loose swing 'interpretation' of
"America The Beautiful".......
& then on to standard rep of 'familiar' old melodies,
   "name-that-tune"........very nice rounds of applause....

'suvivors', now not long to survive the wreckage of Age....

no politics here fckn stilted,stinking orations...
no tales of 'heroism'.........just sound of an old sax'fon, appreciated.....

just a bunch of old guys guys & a gal listening to some passé melodies, waiting for
an inglorious quiet more fckn parades, pleas
