daily routines…

moving to beats
embedded
by society
the world’s people
arise
and
begin
the prescribed
rituals
coffee
tea
polluted water
walking
dogs
feeding
cats
rousing children
from
pretend sleep
a state
of
sleep
designed
to postpone
the participation
in
the rituals
how
quickly children
learn
to dislike
the
rituals
an innate
awareness
of
where
conformity leads
they’d rather dance
to their own beat
but
that’s
not possible
ford assembly line education
assures
their ultimate
participation
in
the rituals
no off cadence
beats
or
steps
are allowed
you must
think of your
credit rating
don’t you ever want
to
a home
rebels
all those lovely
uniformly unique tattoos
which
unknowingly
declares
participation
in the
rituals
tribal markings
like
man’s
early years
on
this planet
tribal markings
and
cave paintings
along
the roadways
where one
can hear
tribal drums
calling out
to all
join
the ritual dance
of
life

 

job security…

digital decoupage cwmartin 2012

simple acts
of death
should not
be ignored
they provided
the backbone
of our society
those
nascent souls
feed
the fires
of industry
providing
plutocrats
with
a safe golf course
to play upon
without
such dying sacrifice
men
of
class
would be forced
to
pay taxes
or
at least
to increase
their
security forces
around
mansions
but
given
the steady diet
of patriotism
fed to the plebs
within
the mindless
educational system
and
corporate media
the ball boys
have
no fear
of
unemployment
