sin added to sin…

first came the lying
next delusions based on lies
then treasonous acts
while calling the innocent
by your own name criminal

 

the machine…

no fancy
neural networking
to
adjust
to
environmental factors
nor
predictive subroutines
for
addressing
possible outcomes
of
actions taken
though
its
intelligence
is
artificial
its exterior structure
has
no sensors
so
feedback loops
are deemed
unnecessary
it is
a self perpetuating device
abstracting
resources
either by
the destruction
of
environmental elements
including
animate
and
inanimate objects
or
depleting resources
acquired
by
others
like single cell organisms
its sole
function
is to survive
for
it is
the political machine
of
the republican demigods

 

this memorial day…

take time
to
look
into
the eyes
of
the dead
see
the person
the
father
mother
grandparent
and
child
who died
for
the political ego
of
a madman
you
needn’t
look
far
the bodies
are
all around you
in
refrigerated trucks
or
lying
in
basement
or
makeshift morgues
but
you may
need
to
pry
the eyes
open

 

you’d better show the proper respect or else…

the brown bag prophet
who’s been
shelved in place
at
a local hotel
in light
of
covid-19
posted
the following note
on
a bulletin board
according to the president
we
must
be thankful
for
receiving a small portion
of
our tax dollars back
especially
given the cost
of
his
green fees
security detail
needed
to
protect him
during
all those rounds
of golf
at
his
resort complex
oh
and don’t
forget
the cart fees
so
we’re
commanded
to feel
blessed
that
we get
anything back

 

manananggal…

a different country
so no one expected a man
true separator
separating the whole world
preying on freedom’s life blood
since it’s not alive
bullets of silver dollars
pass right through its soul
the evil spirit cried out
no chance that the buck stops here
