cartels..

drug lords and politicos
selling dreams by the gram
to anyone paying the price
personal profits first
other’s deaths the cost of doing business

 

with your own hands…

why so many graves
have we entrusted our lives
to those who care not
can we not see that they have
asked us to dig our own graves

 

on the eve of a whitewashed impeachment trial..

we hold these lies
to be
self-evident
all men are created equal
such
hyperbole
is
difficult to say aloud
let alone
have
anyone
in their right mind
believe
endowed
by
their creator
with certain
unalienable rights
you might want
to
strike out
creator
and
substitute
bank account
among these
are
life
this is a contingency plan item
with
variable durations
based upon
social class
liberty
oppressive restrictions apply here
and
should not be taken
literally
and
the pursuit
of
happiness
once again
the text
must be edited
to read
socially defined delusions
further
deponent
sayeth not

 

president believes…

believes doesn’t know
lots a things to believe in
tooth fairies and such
justice for all and of course
my treasured equality

 

gaming the system…

talks about his crimes
but ascribes them to others
it’s his self-portrait
