The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Taboo

Taboo

by

James Bredin


Taboo was just his nickname - the tall hooded guy in ghetto style,
All the tail he could handle and he didn’t need much guile,
Had twenty four kids with unmarried mothers through many years,
Kids all had his last name and this was not considered weird.

He also increased their welfare cheques by no small amount,
Twenty four kids with Taboo’s last name for those who could count,
It was politically incorrect to even mention this fact,
Fatherless hidden ghetto subculture and how they interact.

The welfare workers of the ghetto all shook their long haired heads,
Mere multicultural observers for the province or the feds,
Counting Taboo’s kids and increasing their mothers’ welfare cheques,
Proudly pompously politically correct and complex.
