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

 

 

cartels..

drug lords and politicos
selling dreams by the gram
to anyone paying the price
personal profits first
other’s deaths the cost of doing business

 

makeshift morgue…

though finely crafted
this chamber reeks of death’s stench
that of a nation
assassinated for greed
and political power

cost of prosperity…

marble tokens
of
the excluded
sacrificed
for
the
included

 

little lamb has gone astray…

no where to be found
not a speck of it
absolutely nil
there’s nothing in sight
as far as the eye can see
weeks ago there it was
but once dollars were flowing
it suddenly disappeared
oh moral courage
lost in the senate

 

democracy’s tide…

take as fair warning
although the tide’s in right now
rocks remain below
perils for the ship of state
awaiting one more low tide

 

pieces of property…

if you’re not born white
you’re forced into barracoons
until death’s ship sails

 

your growing regret …

 

your regret will not
breathe life into those who’ve died
so just save your breath
don’t burden us with more lies
of your spineless behavior

 

guide to hell…

like
whores
posing
with
nighttime
pay-by-the-hour
customers
the
insurrectionists
paused
their coup d’état
to
stop
and
take
selfies
in
the capital rotunda
like
al-qaeda terrorists
posing
with
the decapitated heads
of
nude children
unfurling
their venomous flags
of
ignorance
and
hate
as
their toxic breaths
attempted to poison
the air
of
democracy
while
their demigod
leader
hid safely
away
from
the battle
and
as always
took
no responsibility
for
the actions
he
had guided
