paul ryan and his republicans
notice the few women in front,
the token females
in a backdrop of white men in their
clean suits and white shirts.
the 0.1% are so happy in their white club
the lies pour smoothly from their lips
about their concern for the non-white,
the poor, the elderly, the troubled,
as long as they don't interfere with
their tax breaks and gated communities,
private clubs and second homes.
let the poor, the brown, the black, the
white who care, rise up against them.
only then will their smug bleached smiles
fade from their faces.
