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

 

the great unfinished nation…

 

one explanation
for the state of the nation
moral poverty
that human bottomless pit
of sybaritic desire

 

house cleaning…

it’s the start
of
the new year
need
to go through
my
iphone
contact list
and
delete
all
the names
of
those
sacrificed
for
the
financial
and
political
gains
of
society’s
charlatans

 

junk drawers…

each nation has one
where it stores discarded parts
of humanity
utilitarian souls
for the capital machine

 

the time machine…

most americas
have been living like elois
so unaware that
beneath democracy’s soil
morlocks are feasting on them

 

gop murders and more…

one in a thousand
assassinated for their
political gain
national carpetbaggers
watching americans die

 

penny slot machines…

the coins have faces
users never notice them
they’re just shoved into
the slot like souls into war
for users’ personal gain

 

rat in the shed….

not sure
if
you’ve ever
had
a tree rat
but
like most rats
they
don’t seem
to
get stressed
very
easily
no matter
what course
of
action
you take
they’re
just
difficult
to remove
it’s not that
i
haven’t tried
every
legal means
of
removal
but
the rat
keeps wanting
to
hide out
from
the reckoning
that will
no doubt
occur
if it’s rooted
from
it’s
whitehouse-like
fiefdom
but
i’m pretty sure
with
a little more time
and
effort
the rat’s days
are
numbered
