School Bored Theories

Twenty-two
and our School Boards
are hoppin

Madly divided
’bout race
and white saving face
in-between fashion shoppin.

Dear Red and Blue
School Board Candidates,

Regarding Critical Race Theory
that ignores our own lack
of multiculturing experience,

Perhaps a primally significant reason
we have issues
discussing racial divisions
throughout historical seasons
of revision

Textbooking Straight White Patriarchal treasons
against EarthTribe’s polycultural humanity,

Sacred celebrating multicultural divinity
once felt as synergetic
universal Beauty,

Continues to divide
and conquer
our best LeftBrain schooled dominions
is because rich violent red
patriotic bloodshed
is difficult to own
within our own fascist
unmatriarchal histories

Of capitalized ownership
and encultured Earth corrupting
supremely anthro-worshiping
lack of healthy eco/theological
green stewardship
through co-empathically felt
relationship.

Red candidates predict
Critical Race Theory
becomes a cynical prescription
for an inevitable future
of win/lose
zero-sum unfolding

Continuing Business As Usual
White versus Black
reverses White,

While Blue candidates refocus
on Critical Race personal experiences
of historical individuals
investing in divested
separated
divided communities,
privileged versus unprivileged
polarized nations,
degenerate climates
of active distrust
in our apartheid studied past,

Not to prescribe an inevitable future
of rightwing supported hate,
but to describe our win/lose racist past

To inform a therapeutic win/win potential future
humanely balanced,
multiculturally healthy
for our democratic
planetary future.

Twenty-two
and our School Boards
are hoppin

Mad
divided ’bout race
and white saving face
in-between fashion shoppin.

Well, your Mama Eartha’s rich
and your Papa’s Sun
shines bright enlightenin,

So, hush co-despisin,
don’t you,
won’t you try?

Demagogues and Pedagogues

Proclaimed the trunk to His roots:

A demagogue teaches
and preaches
as my head trunk talks down
to my frontline branches

Lesser beings who had best listen
and learn
my stern
and often punishing expectations

Explained the roots
to Her much-loved trunk:

A pedagogue first listens
at the refining foot
of a sacred grassroot system

To serve compassionate communication,
inclusive problem-solving,
celebreating win/win peak experiences
of resonantly embodied promise,
harmony,
musicality,
integrity,
synergy,
transparency,
vulnerability
to multiculturally omniscient expansion.

Demagogues
require retribution
to survive against win/lose
zero-sum competitions
threatening capital-headed
bloating at the crown

While pedagogues invite restoration
of fully embodied thrival
and win/win uncompromised revival,

Faith in nonzero sum
polyculturally active,
deeply saturating communication,
rooted in past peak communion
courageously curious experiences.
