why We celebrate the losers


seriously
the blues are just another
clever disguise
of the night
sun goes down
turns the world to shadows
variations of black
the blues lack color
but they're the blues all the same
the blues are a very
serious game
its an art
you can become an expert
one who could paint their portrait
and identify the genuine article
its said
today we celebrate the loser
instead
of the risers
so many seem to be losing out
on the necessities
love, money, housing, companionship
the last of these
contributes to the most demise
no one talks about the blues
in their lives
because they are too quiet
too wary
too in the shadows
to speak
and what if its said we currently celebrate
the meek
I recall they will inherit the earth
and all the blues in it
even if the colors aren't vibrant or true
and there's a box
the presence of darkness hidden
within it


blue menu/of course/Times, they are Roman
all scribble-scrambled directly to the page
as if it were a stage
