belief is the foundation
of moral compromise
and to complicity 
to crimes against humanity

it’s all negotiable..

it's all negotiable

as
has been
our
nation’s
tradition
human rights
and
freedom
are
on the table
as
items
of
property
to be
the centerpiece
of
our flexible
moral
negotiable instrument
said
instrument
will
strictly
adhere to
the uniform commercial code
stringent efforts
will be made
to obscure
reality
from
the public
through
the use
of
previously
successful
political jargon
or
fear jabberwocky
about
one
ethnic group
or
another
these methods
have been
a full blown
bullet-proof
strategy
resonating
with
voter self-interest
please note
that
this
instrument
is
transferable
to
any entity
residing
in
or
having
control
of
needed resources
listed
in
the initial contract

we
do not
speak
of
such
things
how
human souls
become
the distorted
entertainment
of
others
enslaved
and
forced
to
appease
another’s
lust
but
this is
our
world
and
freedom’s body
has
been
offered
on
the market

so you’ve compromised
decided that they were right
your faults now quite clear
no need to discuss a thing
since you’ve given up all hope
so congratulations
you’ve now joined the rank and file
your fate’s in their hands
you may take your assigned seat
and patiently await death

write offs…

write offs

haven’t you thought that
what you believe and accept
aren’t in harmony 
your pious teachings of love
and how you turn a blind eye

inconclusive bullet results…

inconclusive bullet results

here’s the point my friend
when you sleep with the devil 
the devil’s child’s spawned

 

 

jenga…

jenga

quite a simple game
pull or push for what you want
to get to the top
just like society’s rules
where everything’s tumbling down

systemic bribery…

systemic bribery

lives changed and lives lost
the cost of doing business
a survival game
played by earth’s inhabitants
who ante in their own lives
claiming it’s just a job
oh gratuities
can be quite small or quite large
but they are deserved
say all the recipients
so no need for any guilt
it’s just a little white lie

 

 

recurring remorse …

recurring remorse

night
comes
with
promises
of
sweet dreams
a
promise
often
not kept
instead
images
of
the day
replay
in
a continuous loop
cycling
between
madness
and
depression
forming
cold
body
sweats
dampening
the freshly
washed sheets
liquid fear
a fever
of
compromised morality
concerns
to
be
forgotten
with
morning rays
and
the daily anesthetic
for
survival
rush hour
dementia

like a two bit whore…

like a two bit whore

willing to spread their legs
regardless of the price
those politicians who
choose to be expedient
disregarding their pledges
