They say compression therapy works

To get the swelling down

Drain the fluids that cause pain.

Racism, lymph

and stagnant lies,

All of a piece they seem.

Where the bandage binds.

What a relief to rub them out

For a moment’s rest

Before engaging once again

Work with me

Keep the pressure up

Drain the stinking swamp
