governmental affairs…

one of these mornings
i’m
not
gonna wake up
the condition
i believe
is
called
death
other than
the precise data
regarding
the hour
nature
and
conditions
of
the body
at
that moment
little
has been
documented
regarding
the
agenda
and
provisions
following
death
this seems
to me
to be
an oversight
by
whomever
or
whatever
controls
governmental affairs
of
the afterlife
well
now
there’s
an assumption
afterlife
you see
we have
no solid evidence
or
personal testimony
of
that state
of
soulful residency
of course
this
makes appropriate
preparation
difficult
if
not
impossible
therefore
i believe
that
the government
should
petition
the powers to be
to provide
said
information
before
we
the citizens
have to
participate
further
our
elected officials
should
go first
to establish
appropriate
representation
with
the new administration

in answer to your question…

how do i speak
of justice
that
grey fog
that lingers
along the coast
of life
though seen
from
the inland
it rarely
come this far
 ashore
here
only the smog
penetrates
the lungs
burning
with promises
never fulfilled
nor
intended to be
yet
the foot soldiers
of
innocence
march on
into battles
waving flags
that
mean
little
outside the confines
of
their
dream filled minds
they
like
old men
claiming
the wine
to taste
sweet
although
most know
it’s
as bitter
as
the vinegar
given to
christ
only
differing
by the innocent blood
that gives it
its color
blood
shed
by
seekers of justice
goose stepping
corporate marionettes
appropriately
dressed
for
their role
in
the world’s follies
performances
viewed
with sincere appreciate
by the elite
who would
applaud
but
such actions
would
highlight
the meaninglessness
of such deaths
so
they arrange
for a medal
or
two
as
intermittent reinforcement
but
all are given
a flag drapped coffin
a
consolation prize
a sort of
moral rubber ducky
to be
squeezed
during dark cold nights
provided
by
human greed
a replacement
for the sound
of a human heart
the heart
that was filled
with
love
the one
you used
to
hear
