desantis and others…

desantis and others

so
remember when
politicos
said
there’s no climate change 
and
the waters weren’t gonna rise
along
the coast
well
try telling that
to
the critters
outside
your door

 

 

weapons of mass destruction…

weapons of mass destrction

few will understand
that there are doomsday machines
systematically
for centuries destroying
and consuming the planet
the soulless machines called man

 

 

soul’s solitary confinement…

soul's solitary confinement

rusted prayers
like
night smoke rings
leave the lips
as
an offering
to
the void 
of
hope
prayers
in
a voice
as dry
as
the barren fields
where
dreams
were planted
were that
the bed’s pillow
were
the land
it would yield
a bountiful crop
and then
there would be
no
lonely nights

 

 

refurbished…

refurbished

the skies
have closed up
we’re
unable to breathe
what was life
now
seems like death
a child’s birth
into
this world
of
chaos
is not a glimmer
of
hope
but
a reason
for
regret
for
as many have asked
what
have
we condemned
this
child to
how
could we
be
so thoughtless
but
those same thoughts
were
our fathers’
and
mothers’
so
we share
a guilt
with
all those
who came
before

 

a regrettable poisoning…

a regrettable poisoning

these things
do
sometimes
happen
and
have been
prescribed
as
an act
of
god
you know
that
old
god willing
stuff
like
god
gives a damn
about
what
happens
on
earth
given
duties
of
the universe
new
stars births
and
such
a more
appropriate criminal
is perhaps
humankind
those arbitrary atoms
bombarding
one another
unable
to control
even
minor reactions
with
one another
but
let’s set
guilt
aside
and
consider
the ingestion
of
poison
poison
clearly labelled
yet
taken
without reservation
so
who should
bear the burden
of
blame
those concocting
notorious
chemical compounds
of
death
or
those refusing
to
read
the labels
which is
just
another case
of
ignoring
the
handwriting
on
the wall
perhaps
we’ll need
another
burning bush
to
validate
the
obvious

 

 

about that gnat in your soup…

about that gnat in your soup

i want
to
sincerely
express
my appreciation
for
your honest
statement
of
your deepest trepidations
but
as a mild point
of
perspective
i liked
to
call to your attention
to
this year’s
169 thousand deaths
of
mothers
that occurred
during
childbirth
oh
and
the
2 million hectares
of
forest
that has been lost
to erosion
erosion
produced
by
man’s negligence
of
the planet
oh
and one last thing
to mention
the
23 thousand people
who died
of
hunger

today
but
your serious
concerns
about
the availability
of
live lobsters
in
your local
market
will
of
course
be
given
appropriate
consideration

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

 

 

euthanasia…

euthanasia

once
a beloved family member
charged with nurturing
and
sharing life’s wealth
and tho
it was given
there would be
no
massive lifespan
this
sad reality
has been forced
by
the reoccurring
drain
of
resources
so it is
that
earth
has decided
to
put humans down
to
relieve
the pain
and
suffering
of
the world

 

 

preprogrammed…

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