J.J. Campbell

from the god they prayed to their entire lives

the fourth of july
has come and gone

no fireworks around
here

too many people still
dealing with the fallout
from the memorial day
tornadoes

souls still in shock
waiting for a check

from the insurance

from the government

from the god they
prayed to their
entireĀ lives

each passing day
is another nail into
the coffin

of course, the local
news will find the
crazy woman who
has the same ceiling
that has collapsed twice

once from the tornado
and once from all the rain

she’ll smile into the camera
and tell everyone it’s going
to get better, we just need
to stay strong

i believe they call that
the definition of insanity
