Homeless/RVs

SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN VENICE – Moishe Meshugge, S.2015

To be orShakespere Memorial not to be-
To be a rich Venice developer
and their paid politicians and police dogs
or to keep your soul.
That is the question!
Shakespeare was young, kind
and a talented poet and musician.
His only crime being Black and homeless.
Poor Shakespeare
just sittin by a Venice pagoda
in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Murdered by ultra rich money mad investors.
Instead of compassion and helping
the homeless victims
our crooked politicians
sic their police dogs
to harass and arrest the homeless.
“Where are your papers?!”
bark the gestapo and storm troopers.
“Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore,
so do our minutes hasten to their end.”
Poor Shakespeare
just sittin by a Venice pagoda.
