why so happy…

you do
know
there’s a pandemic
and
economic chaos
as well as
a situation
in which
half
of
the american population
is willing
to support
a self-pandering fascist
oh
you
must understand
i have
no
faith
in
my fellow man’s
concern
or
compassion
for
others
but
i do have
extreme faith
in
my fellow man’s
greed
that needs
a healthy population
and
some semblance
of
democracy
in order
for
said population
to
go to work
earn money
and
buy
all the things
destroying
the
planet

 

you are dying…

just outside
the glow
of
life’s street lamp
death
lingers
like
a gaseous shadow
merging
with
night’s fog
floating
like
waves
into view
then
receding
into
the darkness
as if
reminding
us
of
its presence
for all too often
we deny
that
death
is near
and
that
we
are close
to
extinction

 

the book of dying 2:10…

without a soul nothing is important
destroying the environment pays good dividends
death of others creatures of earth
man or beast matters so little

 

the book of dying 2:5…

shore waters rose washing away graves
freeing the dead from the earth
generations of men set upon waves
sun bleached bones riding white waves

 

the book of dying 2:4…

the seas died no more fishing
ships sail nowhere no reason to
for all waters had death’s stench
ocean’s breezes ceased shore waters rose

 

the book of dying 2:3…

soon rivers smelled odor of death
bloody barren land bore no fruit
oil blackened soil choked earth’s creatures
as rich men toasted their success

 

construction sets…

father
was never
very good
at
erector sets
his bridges
never stood up
that long
as
parts
rusted
and
wood planks
decayed
even when
there wasn’t
a termite
in sight
so
it’s for sure
that
reconstruction
of
this fragile
environment
of
earth’s
so
carefully built
by
mother nature
will
never be
the same
even with
father time’s
best
efforts

 

and we will all fall down together…

when earth finally dies
there will be no survivors
no burial rites
no lies for the coverups
nor reasons for more lying
