dark chapters #7…

i have been wondering
when you would realize
that these chapters
have no end
for they are written
with a pen flowing
with the hatred in human blood
blood graffiti
marring the streets
of
syria
libya
israel
and
every inhabited space
on this planet
there is no
angel of death
there is no
need
for one
when men are
so true
to satanic tenets
as they
have always been
blind to the reality
that they are
satan
and
i
am merely
their excuse
and so it was
on the seventh day
of satan

should’ve thought about that…

first i thought
those missiles
fired at libya
could’ve fed
a lot of folks
each one
could’ve fed
ten families for a year
but then
i realized that i
had failed to consider
the obvious
missiles don’t last
forever
heaven knows
we shouldn’t waste them
that’d be a sin
and i
failed to consider
the training value
of learning to strike
military targets
no use having
fancy equipment
if no one knows
how to use it
and
i certainly failed
to consider
all the jobs
that would be created
to replace those missiles
so needed for our protection
yes
i must have been mad
to think
feeding children
was more important

rules of engagement…
