give me liberty or give you death…

 

bert
was

an old feisty guy
never took
to
all the modern accommodations
provided
by
society
so
when
the
president
instigated insurrection
in
a number
of
democratic states
he
decided
that
traffic laws
no
longer
applied to him
so
if he ran a stop light
resulting in
someone’s
passing
it would be
god’s will
and
not
his
fault
must have been their time to go
for
it’s his right
to have
a quest
for
independence
from
the
social constraints
of
his
liberty
according
to
the president’s
words
and
modelled behaviors

 

blood brotherhood…

there’s blood soaked dollars
lying inside the white house
though not reported
a few select senators
also share the blood bounty

 

shock jocks and other misfits…

their acidic words
poured out of the radio
onto the surface of the brain
melting away all reason
leaving corroded thoughts
of life
and purpose
and then
the synapses
said
ready
aim
fire
