war-like and mean species…

the brown bag prophet
said
civilization
is a sham
we are no more
enlightened
now
than
when
the alps iceman
was
murdered
probably
part of some
early large arena
sporting event
as there
were
no christians
to feed
to lions
at that time
nor
gladiators
to
simulate
war games
for the entertainment
of the drunken masses
now
we have proxy wars
and
contact sports
where
we want
no one
to get killed
just
mangled
if they’re
not on our team
it’s
so easy
to ignore
the atrocities
of war
as long as
the public
is kept
entertained
but
we are reminded
the telecast
is
copyrighted
by
some corporate entity
for
the private use
of
their audience
and
any other use
of
the telecast
or
any pictures
descriptions
or
accounts
of the mayhem
without
corporate consent
is
prohibited
now can’t you
just see
some roman orator
walking out
into the center
of the colosseum
making
that
announcement

alex what did you expect…

law of anarchy
comes when national leaders
ignore human rights
and fabricate hateful rules
for their own personal gain

 

please forward to addressee…

it would appear
that
i’ve
had a change
of
address
imposed upon me
not
surprising
given how
children
treat their parents
these day
and
although
i cannot
convey
to you
my specific address
i can say
that
as i peer out
a small portal
of my
my current housing unit
i see
it ‘s
adorn
with
a bronze angel and child
just above
my head
and
the exterior walls
are
beautifully hand painted
reminds me
of
a crafted cold cast resin
i saw
just the other day
in
the museum
there’s
something
serene
about this place
but
it’s rather
unnerving
not having email
oh
there’s
one other thing
across
the hall
i see something
about
forest lawn

presidential shared guilt absurdity…

we’ve heard this before
like victims of rape are blamed
for being women
