Double Rainbow

A Double RainbowMy sister took a picture of a double rainbowfrom my mothers houseand I doubt it came with a promise of twice the hopeonly with colors and archesthere was no bridge to a land of midgetsI’m the tallest of the children anywayand as for that pot of goldmy mother grew up in the depressionwhen they watched Shirley Temple films.How much of a leg up do you needbefore you feel the price of it.That crushed look in a proud persons eyesit touches something deeper and primal.Can you overdo a helping hand I hope notI hope that growing self respect doesn’t take another lifetime.Put people to work and then let them go aboutbuilding self sufficiency.I saw a picture of a double rainbowan optical illusionafter a gulleywasherbefore the next bank of clouds.Teach a man how to grow his ownand he’ll feed himself for a lifetimejust don’t keep changing the damn rulesand give him twice the hope with none of the chance.
