please hold for the next customer service representative

leaders in a daze
officials comatose
infrastructure broken down
those in charge verbose

refugees forlorn
left in dire straits
bureaucrats are bungling
top dog hesitates

social paralysis
mental overload
civilization nullified
when weak minds implode

Lives in Limbo

From Dome to Dome,
I call bleachers “home”
‘til the powers that be
know what t’do with me.

In a land this grand,
I don’t understand
why I have to stay
sardine-packed this way.

To the stars and mars
we shoot our space cars,
but to New Orleans
we can’t truck Marines?!

I’m just one of a ton
Katrina’s undone,
who thought the U.S.
was great, in duress.

But wait for Fate
to evacuate,
seems all we can do,
with no help in view.

Stuck here, I fear
I’ll just disappear
while officials meet,
drag their nice, dry feet!

I'm heading down to New Orleans next week (10/05-10/09) to help out in a shelter. I would love to bring messages from kids who are planning to help in this effort. Please post something here, or email me. Thanks.
