do you feel lucky…well, do ya, punk…

do you feel lucky

step right up
and
place
your bets
bet
whatever dollar amount
you wish
there are
no
limits
but
all bets
regardless
of
the wager
are
for
your life
toss the dice
of
climate change
where
the words
of
the game
are
loaded
and
suggest
you can win
but
the reality
is
the house
always wins
and
in this case
the
house
is
death
hey
but
if you’re feeling
lucky
spin
the wheel
of
global warming
watch
the wheel
whirl
like
a planet
out
of control
where
the potential
payout odds
for
survival
are
well
let’s just say
enjoy
the game

 

 

justifiable homicide…

justifiable homicide

biblically inspired
post-it notes
placed
on the pages
of
history
easily removed
and
replaced
to
fit
the occasion
and/or
the whims
of
men’s
greed

open-air prisons…

open-air prisons

long term
detention centers
have been established
in both
urban
and
rural
areas
to
facilitate
availability
of
cheap labor
for
our corporate
and
community
job release programs
these expansions
have resulted
in
the necessity
for
additional security services
for
patrolling
penal colonies
and
periodically
reminding inmates
via
random
stops
searches
and
seizure
of
their existence
that
they don’t have
voting rights
as for those
prisoners
living outside
the prison confines
and
firmly established
in
viable
work furlough programs
let me
assure you
that they
are
subject to
the same
prison system security procedures
to
insure compliance
with
our concept
of
social confinement
even when
living outside
america’s
ghettos
and
poverty rich
communities

 

 

cartels..

drug lords and politicos
selling dreams by the gram
to anyone paying the price
personal profits first
other’s deaths the cost of doing business

 

preprogrammed…

impulses must be arrested
firing patterns altered
from societal inscribed behaviors
otherwise history repeats
and extinction’s accelerated

 

makeshift morgue…

though finely crafted
this chamber reeks of death’s stench
that of a nation
assassinated for greed
and political power

cost of prosperity…

marble tokens
of
the excluded
sacrificed
for
the
included
