Our Times

Painting by Jeffrey Ackerman — 2016 (with permission of the artist)

An age of infinite irony:

A billion and a half locked out of school
while the lesson of the century is being taught

Late night hosts muster leadership and insight
while the leaders in name point fingers

Pop n fresh kernels of self-righteous entitlement
bake up fluffy, and light,
full of air-puffed attitude
nothing more,
nothing less
