mount st helens…

promises
of
freedom
carefully crafted
dreams
to
resemble
reality
a socially embedded
myth
like
an induced
drug
comma
that
has postponed
the nightmare
unfolding
across
the
nation
it
is
a reoccurring
incubus
calling out
for
the promises
of
freedom
to be
fulfilled
not by some
high priest’s
words
offering
more of the same
gruel
that
with patience
it
will be delivered
but
it has never
been
delivered
nor
i fear
ever
will
be
and
i suspect
time is running out
for
promises
and
promisors

  1. Love this, Charles. Like you, we’ve had years of promises that haven’t been delivered and never will be, mostly because they had no basis in reality to begin with. Time is indeed running out for the fools and charlatans that sold them, but it seems they’ll do literally anything to avoid responsibility or blame, and whatever it takes to remain in power. Here, at least, it appears there’s no situation so bad they can’t find a way to make it worse! N.
