    the riots
    I've watched this city burn twice
    in my lifetime
    and the most notable thing
    was the arrival of the
    politicians in the
    aftermath
    proclaiming the wrongs of
    the system
    and demanding new
    policies toward and for the
    poor.
    nothing was corrected last
    time.
    nothing will be corrected this
    time.
    the poor will remain poor.
    the unemployed will remain
    so.
    the homeless will remain
    homeless
    and the politicians,
    fat upon the land, will live
    very well.

    You obama fans are sounding a little despondent right now.
