Concerning Raymond
by Tom Harmon

    got a letter from government
    "concerning Raymond" first line said.

    dead never took so many fancy words
    to say

    but I got rights
    last paragraph read.

    "concerning Raymond"
    never used the word son

    for the dawn of my life
    but I got rights

    just no other day.
