no expedient allegiance with faith…

knees sore from praying
thumbing for a new passage
for understanding
compromising with evil
but not one can be found

 

when saints dance with devils …

the chamber’s littered
with charred bones and melted gold
wealth of the nation
abstracted from its people
solely for a few’s pleasure
but fools won’t complain
they believe their battles won
but the gold’s been cast
into their final death masks
poured over their moral souls
stealing their last breath
branding their souls with their greed
leaving sunken eyes
empty of tomorrow’s hope
like rats on a sinking ship

 

without a window…

rancid air fills lungs
what’s outside makes no difference
what’s said is what’s real
question none of existence
when the bell rings salivate

 

arrogant and self-righteous…

 

there you are
talking
all high-and-mighty
like
a preacher
from
a pulpit
sermonizing
’bout
the need
for
others
to stop
their
sinful ways
yet
you alone
deny
food and shelter
to
the poorest
you alone
deny
the sick
a healing hand
unless
the palm
already
holds a coin
if not
thy will be done
thereby
issuing
death warrants
to millions
just
to add billions
to
billionaires
you alone
deny
children
access
through
the doorway
from
deprivation
to
a future
you
alone
america
you
alone

 

united sleepy hollows…

having seen
washington’s
headless horseman
the blind bag prophet
said to me
i ain’t saying
griffin’s photo
wasn’t in bad taste
hell
i didn’t like
the monkey version
of
obama
nor
the one with
hillary
bursting
from his chest
so
anytime
one stoops
to the level
of those
talked about
one becomes
the monster
but
the fact is
political cartoons
are generally
tasteless
and
in the case
of the headless wonder
i think it was
symbolic
of
what ‘s happening
to others
in this country
and
world
as a result
of
self-centered behaviors
with
an attitude
of
let them eat cake
lots
of families
gonna die
cuz
of current policies
we
won’t see
their bloodied heads
but
they’ll
truly
be dead
