Writing after a long day of work.
Interrupted by some jerks.

Could have been worse,
Bombed the Zoom room.

Some idiots interrupting the poetry
with racism, homophobia and bigotry.

Wonder why people do shit like this?
Witnessed some real racist shit.

Good friends on the mic about to read,
some punk ass kid geolocates me.

COVID-19 spreads stuff like that.
Zoomtown rats got nothing better to do than that.

Missed some missions, space stations,
got Nazi kids in the basement

saying their racist epitaphs,
brandishing pornographic photographs.

Not cool to see
when trying to unwind my mind

after a long day of work,
interrupted by some jerk.

Could have been worse.
Bombed the zoom room.

Some idiot kids
interrupting the poetry.
