April is National Poetry Month

Happy National Poetry month.  Here is my contribution.

“Red Cent”

Beware the Ides of March is what they used to say
beware the Ides of April seems more apt today.
Taxes argued over by right and left
new parties float around bereft.
The people watch in a lulled slumber
as politicians lead them asunder.
People at war and planet in crisis
what’s happened to the people’s synapses?
Revolution’s in the air on both sides of the aisle
but which of the supporters will carry leaders the mile?
Once again we’re in a predicament
trying to solve it with another red cent.
We’ve been here before and money’s not the answer
it seems to me money is the cancer.
Taxes argued over by right and left
new parties float around bereft.
Beware the Ides of March is what they used to say
beware the Ides of April seems more apt today.
