Michael Marrotti

Marrotti

Established In 1981: Built To Last

Established
in the 80’s
when it was
socially
acceptable
to use the
word faggot

Pop music
was extraordinary
imported from
Britain when it
still had Great
in the title

Mohawks
were in vogue
Not these assholes
enamored of
hip-hop culture

Reagan was
passing
out in the
White House
decades before
my white privilege
and believe it or not
commodities
were still made here

I’m from a generation
that has a set of balls
the last of our kind
I’m not manufactured
in China or apologetic
for being honest
I’m from America
before it grew
a vagina
Built to last

Michael Marrotti is an author from Pittsburgh using words instead of violence to mitigate the suffering of life in a callous world of redundancy. His primary goal is to help other people. He considers poetry to be a form of philanthropy. When he’s not writing, he’s volunteering at the Light Of Life homeless shelter on a weekly basis. If you appreciate the man’s work, please check out his blog:www.thoughtsofapoeticmind.blogspot.com for his latest poetry and short stories.
