against the machine
we stomp, we kick;
ass we imagine
[of] those we loathe.
drop a penny, a dime,
a quarter, damn dozen;
no water for the thirst.
run for life or run
for position --
what's the point?
what's in --
or the question?
public face, integrity --
always a collition;
pub[l]ic hair unkempt
or otherwise...
no votes for all reasons;
be wise.

Your skills with off-beat rhythm and sound and semi-rhymes are almost subtle enough to be unintentional.

You're very good at expressing thought.
