History Repeating

by Douglas Polk

listening to stories of the Depression,
on my father's knee,
now nervously waiting the events to come,
the drought already here,
along with the stock market crash,
experienced in 2008,
financial ruin,
the homeless,
only house less,
but not on the streets,
no food lines,
or soup lines,
food stamps instead,
thinking of laying in bed,
and covering my head,
afraid of where the first bombs will fall.
