Chicagoetry: Elegy For White Power

ELEGY FOR WHITE POWER

God favors us
who grieve,

for we have
loved.

Twelve angry men,
losing their cool:

people of means,
of every color,

have moralized cocaine,
just as they did

liquor during
prohibition.

Legalize it: label it,
TAX IT and let those

who need it
register

to get it.
O SHIT!!!

Couple of lines
at the Jimmy Buffet

or Stones concert,
couple of lines in the

washroom at the charity
fundraiser . . .

O SHIT!!!
Couple of lines before

going on
the air . . .

People of means
have already moralized

it. Can we
'fess up?! Course not. Dig:

Twelve angry white
men and their

moral arrogance:
we have MONEY

so we're GOOD.
America is the RICHEST

nation therefore it is
the best.

Sorry, fellas.
Stop the killing, eliminate

the profit motive,
admit to the single largest drug

DEMAND
in the world.

It's a DEMAND problem,
stupid.

Legalize the goddam
motherfucker.

Ooo, don't wanna threaten
White Moral Power.

I SUCK.
As with alcohol, people

of means have MORALIZED
cocaine, as long as their kids

only DO IT in high school
and don't die

from the market
forces that bring it

to them.
Well, coke and Mother's Little

Helper, of course.
O shit, I acknowledged

unsupervised suburban kids
doing their parents' prescription

drugs because their parents
have other things on their minds,

like, their own
personal gratification!!!

I SUCK.
Grow up. Fess up.

Legalize what y'all've
already

moralized.
Not until YOUR white kids

in the suburbs start
dying?!

God favors us who grieve
for we have

loved White
Power.

In the name of the Father,
Son and Holy

Ghost, I hereby bury
thee.

May only God
have

mercy . . .
