diagnosis…

diagnosis

without
sanity
one
would let
children die
while
political debates
raged
about what to do
without
sanity
the world
would avoid
giving aid
to those in need
in lieu of
lottery tickets
without
sanity
a government
would send its children
off to war
while corporations
profit
from their deaths
without
sanity
yes
without
sanity

  1. I threw down my pen—
    The poetry was silent,
    Hiding in oozing bubbles of
    Toxic waste—
    Searching for delivery from the
    Matricide catastrophe.
    Alas, the tipping point
    Left shore on a
    Stealth bomber whose
    Cargo screams:
    Silent Spring.
