Poem: Unsent Letter to the Editor 

In your letter to the editor
you scolded my letter
to the editor for reminding
you that George Bush
was the only president in
our history with a police
record, reminding me that
Gandhi and King also
had police records, then
signing off by telling me
to go crawl back under
my rock, but you know,
there are police records
and then there are police
records. There is Gandhi,
there is King and then there
is Bush. There are rocks and,
friend, then there are rocks.
