you needn’t listen to me but….

aswang
is
as real
as
humankind
indeed
humankind
may be
aswang
one merely
needs
to carefully examine
how
humans
treat each other
war
of
course
is the most
incestuous relationship
but
religious behaviors
have
also proven
to be
characteristic
of
aswang
and
those seeking
wealth
through
political stalking
have been
heard
making
the
ticking sound
so commonly
found
in the darkness
of
life’s forest
as well
along
well-lit
urban streets
you may
well
think me mad
as
i blend
these spices
for
my sting ray whip
but
we shall see
who
survives
this night

 

pay-for-slay…

 

the brown bag prophet
was holding up
a sign
that said
let’s do pay-for-slay too
and yes
once again
i was compelled
to
inquire
why
the prophet said
well
we give billions
to
israel
and
other countries
so
if we really want
the killing
to
stop
we’ll deduct
from
those funds
for
each
innocent life
taken
of course
given
the number of deaths
already this year
some countries
will owe
us
money
