Patriot Riders/Memorial Day

Their deaths come racing into my inbox like spam
World War 2, Korea, Nam
Then the young ones too, teenagers, men, women
Younger than some of my bedroom linen

Land of freedom with buckets of scum
believers of Jesus with cameras for guns
chasing memorials, hyenas for a meal
lucrative righteousness, television deal

The High Court is petitioned, with
Virginia left alone, refusing to defend
the honor of our home, of the grieving,
of the memory of patriots who died
so that we can paint our words
on the red bubble sky

With biker roar, flags ablaze, the cyclists arrive
a Harley resistance against foolishness and lies
Standing alongside loved ones of the fallen
Invited, united against twisted revulsion

In every state, every time they are asked
the Patriot Riders bring honor steadfast
Isn’t it ironic a symbol iconic
of anti-establishment
is now surely Heaven sent.
