Welcome to WNIJ's Poetically Yours. Poetically Yours showcases poems from northern Illinois poets. This week's poem is by Bear Wolf.
Wolf is a Shawnee Gypsy Jew social justice humanist who lost count of his tattoos somewhere around 20. This world makes no sense to him, so he makes music and poetry.
Here's his poem "Wake Up Call, (Blue Horizons Are Just the Beginning.)"
Blue may have won
But America is still lost
The cost of living
Is making a killing
Races through our veins
The stains of red
