state of the nation…

the state of the nation

it’s a police state
goose-stepping towards yesterday
corporate greed mandates
your share of national wealth
but it’s morally bankrupt

heavenly rave cancelled…

heavenly rave cancelled

we’re rebel angels
we dance on the edges of clouds
our weekly outing
hoping not to fall to earth
things there have become
a real living hell on earth
wars and pandemics
those corrupted corporations
producing famine
have made reincarnation
an unattractive option
so we always watch our step
heaven forbid
we fall from grace and end up
back at our old place
maybe these parties should stop
i mean we’ve lived this before
so there’s no needed revivre

war games…

war games

rules of engagement
which no one really follows
civilized murder
has never been possible 
nor desirable since it
would restrict corporate profits

gifting…

gifting

after being robbed
a fool was asked by a man
on the street for alms
his empty purse was given
turns out the man was the thief
purse sold for a fine profit

 

 

a passing interest in…

a passing interest in

voyeurs of murders
neatly dressed politicians
at home drinking wine
calmly watching war’s horrors
stressed waiting for stock reports

where were you when the lights went off…

where were you when the lights went out

save your platitudes
there’ll be no raising the dead
from hope’s shallow grave
your words are dead dry flowers
on humanity’s warm blood
something to make you feel good
your words cannot heal
bloodied wounds of human flesh
nor suture the souls
ripped apart by promises
to support democracy
but bookkeepers rule the roost
so as often said
save your breath for future lies
reach into your purse
and place some copper pennies
on the eyes of all those who
trusted in your empty words

your opinion matters…

american genocide ethnic cleansing

it’s so often said
but still there is war and death
we clamor for peace
while politicos debate
what sanctions should be employed
media outlets conduct surveys
to assess public thoughts
on who could have prevented
a war based on greed
a meaningless task to those
who are now buried beneath
the rubble of fallen hope
and the hard truth is
no one is listening to us
war’s about profits
our opinions are worthless
like lives sacrificed in war
war’s about the bottom line

 

 

technical education and scotus…

technical education and scotus

the lawsuit
argued
before
the supreme court
was
since children
might
have negative feelings
all history
must be
banned
furthermore
since
literature books
might
contain references
to which
a parent
might
find offensive
all
literature books
must be
banned
education
must
focus only
on the three rs
reading
technical manuals
with
no human representation
wouldn’t want
to imply
any race concepts
writing
business reports
again without mention
of
human representation
and of course
rithmetic
without using
any human representation
all other courses
should be taught
at home
parents
whose children
fail
the government
home educational assessment
should be imprisoned
and
their children
placed
in a federal reeducation center
in addition
all extracurricular activities
such as
band
sports programs
drama performances
should be
banned
since
at least
one
parent finds
such activities
offensive
thus providing
the perfect
educational program
for
providing for
the upper
one percent

jurisprudence…

jurisprudence

many laws have been
for the protection of crime
just check the authors
embezzlers and slave traders
a motley crew of swindlers
rebranded as patriots
