I thought I’d change up Mondays for a while with poetry inspired by music. Today’s was inspired by Another Brick in the Wall, pt. 2 by Pink Floyd. Let me know what song you’d like to hear about in the comments!
I laid every dusty, red brick
of that mortar riddled school wall
like it was just another job
for my denim jeans and work boots.
I never asked why they hired
a prison building company
to construct their grim barricade
or why they wanted barbed wire
until I saw a boy staring
through the window of his classroom
at what used to be clear blue skies,
and turned back to his science class.
