a corner plot…

a corner plot

will there be a burial
i think not
but
it’s tradition
there’s nothing to bury
but it’s
tradition
look
war has faded
our pristine traditions
and
glimmering visions
of heaven
they’ve been replaced
by
earth the color death
oh
once
it was our tradition
to honor
a family’s with great respect
if a loved died in battle
for our concept of freedom
we even when so far
as to protected
those who survived
now
only dollars matter
and how
you get them
doesn’t matter
and
it doesn’t matter
who you destroy
as long as
you don’t have to suffer
along side them
so
there will be
no burial
unless
we choose
to bury
tradition

evildoers in our midst…

evildoers in our midst

yes
it’s official
evildoers
are in our midst
the country harbors
a nest
of
communists
and
communist sympathizers
oops
wait
strike out that
mccarthy era
phrase
communist
and
replace it with
evildoers
i digress
what this country needs
is
broader government surveillance
of
americans
if you have
any
questions
regarding this matter
just look
at how well
we’ve protected
personal
civil liberties
throughout
our history
oh
and please
ignore
all that stuff
on
internment of japanese americans
and
southern lynchings

having found the best star in the universe to watch armageddon….

best star

two
opposing sides
of
the same
small town
each
protectorates
of
what is
right
while ignoring
the rights of others
a scenario
played out
at most local taverns
the players
monitored
by
uninvited guests
due to a loophole
in the rule of americana
that
visitors are to be
welcomed
with open arms
even when
the very thought of them
is repulsive
the observers
of course
receive
a yin and yang description
of the community
which clearly
and
quickly
defines
black and white issues
as grey
where
the wolves
differ only
in the texture
of their wool
