Sufferin’ Succotash by Billy Charles Root

What is this that has come and sat

As a boulder burden upon my neck

A Sunday depression stressfully fat

Secured by chained and jammed sneck


The poeticness of humanity

Has lost its color

Shades of black and blue


Gone are yellow and pink

Gray all day

Poison blood surging

Inpatient rapture of the soul

Into just sit and do nothing


Worthlessness filling drip by drip

Splashing into my mouth bit by bit

Choking dark drowning lungs fill

Shadow among shadows unstill


Death and murder all around

Another star falling down

Hollywood joke is a life with money

Everyone’s laughing at all that ain’t funny


Dry tears flow unseen

Scrapping trenches in my cheeks

Common sense goes fast

Even in my dreams
