We All Need A F@cking Win

There was an active shooter in my hometown today

20 miles north of where I currently live

Something to do with a local gang and the county fair


The details are still murky


My niece and nephew could’ve been there…


There’s a fire 20 miles south of me

But they seem to have that under control


But…

Nothing feels under control right now…


The country has gone batshit


The world is squeezing us


And we’re popping


Our government

Our media

The viruses

The inflation


It turns out

America is very sensitive

Give us a little push

And we lose our damn minds


The riots

And shootings


The suicides and the homeless


Turn up the heat on us

And we pop

Like kernels

Over the flame

Pop


And

It is caving in on me


Surrounded by the squeeze


I can feel the flame

I can hear the pop

I can hear the screams of a local fair in disarray…

Pop


We could all use some good news

We need a win


Who’s going to do it?


Are you?



Will I have to try?


You want me to rage against the squeeze?


I’m just a man…

I’ll pop too


I need you

And you need me

You and me

Need to become a we

And then we


Need to get a fucking win.


-C.H.
