Aristotle for Dummies
They say X jumped the turnstile.
Whoever jumps turnstiles must pay.
Therefore, the police came charging.
They say immigrant X bled traces of cocaine.
Whoever bleeds cocaine has partied illegally & recently.
Therefore, immigrants should bleed responsibly.
They say someone that looks like X assaulted someone Y years ago.
Whoever looks like X may have been X.
Therefore, we must exhume X’s body for DNA clearance.
They say X’s visa expired.
Whoever has an expired visa must fear the law of double negatives.
Therefore, the illegal visa cancels the illegal murder.
They say X’s death was only 1 accident after Z+ killed.
They say X’s unfortunate accent confirmed X wasn’t a citizen.
Therefore, X < Z, wrongful foreigner less than righteous nationals.
They say X has become an angel, which is a nice thing to say.
Whoever becomes an angel doesn’t need memorials.
Therefore, X blesses us from above to forget X.
My cousins have been killing vultures left & right.
Not our fault. Who mined melted molded
me into a rocket-head
to stop jumping things from jumping things?
That’s what vultures do
they eat the things that stopped jumping.
Bound to crack me.
Me being me I slowpoison them.
My fam too has been poisoning water
rivered thru straw veins.
Sickening air by flaking shiny walls
whose destiny is to powder
right where you open the morning
by your baby’s crib up down up
me flake you breathe. Why am I so poisonous?
Funny you should ask. How you write lead
& lead the same. Who can tell which way
to health which to death?
Now you forbid me-water-veins me-shiny-paint
then use me-bullets only.
All the same I lead the way thru skin bone meat.
All the same you blame my going
exactly where you want me to.
