conscription of thought…

ideas tailor fitted
for
public consumption
developing
an
acquired taste
for
the objectionable
killing
becomes
an act of faith
or
a necessary price
to pay
for
fill-in-the-blank causes
the
sales personnel
for
these marketed callings
dress
according
to
the product
being sold
wearing
symbolic uniforms
conveying
a contractual covenant
with
soon-to-be-named
and
documented deities
official
evidence
provided
upon request
from
handwritten human text
since
deities
rarely write
but
are more than willing
to
incite
romantic writings
quite
digestible
to
a core
of
white caned followers

welcome to yesterday…

the new welfare recipients
ain’t looking
for food
or
cash money
no
these folks
want to ingest
political dribble
based on
their own
fanatic fantasies
they want
someone
to tell them
that
prince charming
will be arriving
on
the 4:30 crosstown bus
and
will deliver them
from the evils
of
literacy
so
they’ll gonna get
all
dressed up
in
racist gowns
made
from the finest
secondhand sheets
then
they’ll head outside
sit on the stoop
with
a case of bigot beer
and
shotguns of ignorance
screaming
at passer-byes
that
they need
to go home
screaming
as
they scratch
their diseased flesh
flesh
irritated
because
underneath
their sheets
they’re wearing
foreign-made jeans
and
walmart imported suits
thus
representing
america’s finest
home-grown puppets
handled
by puppeteers
wearing
stuard hughes
diamond editions suits
for
gardening

the great horn owl speaks
words to its friend the darkness
asking why it is
that so many in day’s light
can be so blind to the truth

as you like it….

as you like it...

the brown bag prophet
said
i’m considering building
a doorway puppet stage
to increase
my financial situation
i’ve noticed
that
currently
cardboard karaoke cutouts
have been placed
on the political stage
singing the public’s favourite songs
of paranoia
and
animosity
and
of course
numerous childhood rounds
of delusional financial dreams tunes
of
a balance budget
with
tax cuts
hell
i’ve even heard
songs sung
with attributional bias tones
providing performers
with
a range
of protection
from
any
responsibility
so
you know
there’s money
to be made
with
such
performances
