herd immunity…

group resistant to
the rule of law and justice
because of their badge

 

as death approaches…

having difficulty recalling
the names
of
friends
unable to
discern critical issues
that
must be addressed
for
personal welfare
leaves mail
unattended
hoping
payment
can be avoided
blurred vision
unable
to
see clearly
what’s all around
increased confusion
and
reduced concentration
so
unable to do everyday tasks
continually talks
about
the past
but
cannot recall
the real events
fantasizes
leaving out
what was
wrong
keeps saying
wants things to be
like
that fantasized world
but
the world cannot
return to
what
never was
so
making
a dying
nation
great again
is not
possible

 

 

resurrectionists…

even as
we
bury countless dead
practitioners
under the cover
of
the pandemic’s darkness
have
begun quietly
to
steal artifacts
and
personal effects
of
corpus juris
most
of
these robbers
do so
for
profit
others
are
power’s cannibals
seeking
to
eat the flesh
of
freedom
whatever
their motivation
one must
question their morality
and
allegiance
to
the land
where
they’ve
soiled
their hands

 

article 92…

we the people
of
these united states
do
hereby
charge
donald j trump
under
article 92
of
the uniform code
of
military justice
for
dereliction of duty
and hereby
call for
his immediate arrest
and
confinement
until
such time
as
a trial
can be convened
to delineate
the duration
of
his imprisonment
let the record show
that
innocent non-combatants
and
his own troops
have been killed
as a result
of
his performance
in
the office
of
the president
quote
the raven
never
more

 

another laundry day…

child
ain’t nobody
gonna
wash
your laundry
those stains

have been
on
your bed sheets
for
years
and
as much as
you’d like
they
ain’t
no
turin shroud
looks
more to me
like
the face
of
a dying nation
outlined
in the blood
of
its
fringe
citizens
but
you do as you wish
add
some more
bleach
to
make it
as
white
as
snow
just like
you’ve done
everytime
that stain
for
freedom
reappears

 

intensive care…

initially
no visible symptoms
of
impending demise
although
patient’s prognosis
was
questionable
due to
prior
illnesses
however
patient reported data
implied
there was
no need
for
concern
but
an internal
infection
had continued
to
spread
sepsis
that soon involved
all
major organs
severe sepsis
until
the nation
was in
septic shock
a hapless
victim
of
its
own
untreated
choices

malpractice…

diagnosed cancer
but all treatment was withheld
patient was told lies
so life and liberty died
and now the bodies pile up

 

just a simple question…

how many bodies
must line the street where you live
before you question
what has been or has not been
done to heal a nation’s wounds

 

rancid human blood…

cold winds
without words
voices
still unheard
old men
without souls
place death
upon your lips
and say
that
you
should drink
do not
think
drink
your chapped lips
rest upon
the rim
a thought
why
do they
not
drink
first
if death
is not
to
be
feared
what are
these shadows
reflected
below
the rim
perhaps
souls
forever lost
in
lies
but
now
the choice
drink
or
think

 

this most foul strange and unnatural…

the serpent that stung
thy father and thy mother
now wears death’s red crown
was a forged process their deaths
gold coins were all that mattered
