Image for the poem the eighth gradation

the eighth gradation

once dis-informed perpetually
a formerly functioning community
comes apart most naturally

this steady degradation
of a first world nation
led to ever darker gradations

in a daylight highway robbery
the open carry of hollow point bribery
has been sold to us as unique liberty

find the predators in the scene
who pays mad-dogs to be mean
the nuttiest rep.s we’ve ever seen?

work to graduate out of eighth grade nation
where stunted minds skew participation
where the misshapen pollute the whole of creation

our thesis that evolution never stops
once leveraged to demilitarize these nervous cops
will earn us doctorate level props

at the sound of the bell stand together
delinquents fleeing is a good bellwether
it’s a fight for much better this semester
