Surrealistic Elegy For Ronnie Burk 1955-2003
In an affluent suburban Boston high school
a 16 year old white kid
stabs a 15 year old white kid to death while Oprah
builds a 40 million-dollar school in South Africa.
In East Africa man walks upright
and becomes uptight.
In Iraq today 24 soldiers are educated to death
while back home
freedom reigns supreme, apparently.
Ah thud ah sah ah poohdy cad
from the inside
was Tweety Bird’s last Chicano thought.
