the book of dying 1:4…

but men chastised claiming their righteousness
war was good bringing all peace
filling the markets so none starved
what’s done is good for all

carnival pitchman and other itinerant showmen

tho seas are rising
some still stand outside the ark
saying have no fear
their business is to sell dreams
when umbrellas would be best

hiding in plain view…

the ugliness
of this nation
is
visible
but
like
the emperor’s
new clothes
the senate
and
the courts
refuse
to admit
to
the naked hate
and
lawless ambition
parading
down
white
marble corridors
corridors
which were
once
reserved
for those
who
truly care
for
human rights
and
dignity
it ‘s
a matter
of
protocol
politicos
say
adding
we must endure
such
behaviors
out of convention
but
we have
good intentions
for
the future
however
i recall
that
the road
to hell
is paved
with good intentions

no time to listen
you’re sure you’ve all the answers
preening your feathers

preening your feathers
as lions sing hunting songs
no time to listen

no time to listen
so lions devour your flesh
preening your feathers
