A Gray Day - An original JMI poem


By resident JMI poet and essayist Alan Suback


It's a gray day in the u.s.a.

a gray day in the news

soon they'll tell us "Go away"

you've got nothing we can use 

but where will we go?

and what will we take?

and when do we get to come back ?

the answers to all your questions

are usually found between the cracks


my friend told me, "you have no control,

You were the only one laughing"

well ok, if that's the way it is

maybe I'm better off leaving. 

'It's a gray day today

gray into black

but the main thing that has us worried is

when do we get to come back?
