why so happy…

you do
know
there’s a pandemic
and
economic chaos
as well as
a situation
in which
half
of
the american population
is willing
to support
a self-pandering fascist
oh
you
must understand
i have
no
faith
in
my fellow man’s
concern
or
compassion
for
others
but
i do have
extreme faith
in
my fellow man’s
greed
that needs
a healthy population
and
some semblance
of
democracy
in order
for
said population
to
go to work
earn money
and
buy
all the things
destroying
the
planet

 

story of brutality…

To A Friend Having Gain Insanity

the sight
of
blood
flowing
on
the streets
may
engender
no
feelings
from you
since
it’s
not
your blood
but
rest assured
these
troubled times
may
soon
see
your blood
mingled with
black blood
and
your flesh
detoured by
wall street vultures
or

cannibalized
by
good
christian folks
who
have
a history
of
offering
their
god
to
slaves
immigrants
and
native americans
along
with
blankets and linens
contaminated
with
smallpox
it would seem
things
have not changed
but now
it’s
an offering
of
covid-19
from
the
white house

 

tomb raiders…

like locusts
that
devour every living thing
grave robbers
have set upon
the land
they’ve come
in waves
the first
were
those
just seeking
the finest treasures
all the while
spray painting graffitii
to cover up
all the sacred symbols
the second wave
was comprised
of
magistrates
ministers of the law
seeking
personal glorification
by
possessing
those things that would
extend their power
in the eyes
of
others
the last wave
were common men
tearing
through the tomb
seeking
scraps
whatever
tossed aside
by
those
whose actions
had taken
justice
and
freedom
from
the nation

 

american greatness…

so
this
is what
makes
america
great
the herding
of
immigrant children
into
cages
along its borders
the confining
of
its elders
so
death
will whisk away
its
economic woes
its knee
of
fascism
firmly
on
the neck
of
the free press
its
systemic
oppression
and
murder
of
its poor
and
all
outside
its elite class
of
white
a class
that has
a class
within
a class
male
and
female
its dominators
and
dominated
all the while
its
leader
hides
away in a bunker
like

hitler
as the war
for
freedom
rages outside
oh
such greatness
is hard
to
fully
imagine
but
it would appear
it has been
achieved

 

presidential privilege….

the brown bag prophet
was holding court
by
the public park fountain
a most
picturesque
setting
as
a young group
of
bible thumpers
entered the park
and
were
doing
their best
to ignore
the prophet
and
his fellow believers
that
nature
is
god’s true temple
with that thought
in mind
the prophet
decided
to
offer
a temple talk
to
the youths
the prophet
said
now I have a paradox
for you
let’s say
someone claims
that
laws are not applicable
to
them
and
they behave
and
are treated
as if
that
were true
then
if
violent acts
are
committed against
them
has a crime
been
committed

 

the pharisees among us…

like
the pharisees
we
continue
to sacrifice
the lives
of others
for
the
good
of
the nation
our willingness
to
crucify
children
and
those
less fortunate
than
ourselves
is
an inherent
right
of
the self-righteous
one
merely needs
to
wrap themselves
in
the appropriate cloak
of
ignorance
to
justify
partisan crimes
against
humanity
while
raging
antagonistically
against
those
who
dare
to
serve
dinner wine
at
the
wrong
temperature

 

the moth hole…

 

a small
irregular hole
in
the pocket
of
an old cardigan
five neat buttons
adorn
the front
buttons
handled
by
two generations
of
doctors
in this village
so
such a small hole
would be expected
after
almost
two lifetimes
but
not the one
in the back
the one
left by
a government soldier’s
bullet

 

long remembered…

 

they died as martyrs
cameras recorded their deaths
crowds chanted praises
promising not to forget
but death’s fear clears one’s memory

 

must cancel my appointment…

 

sorry sir
ain’t got nothing
in
the bag
no wool
from
sheep
nor
anything else
to make
you
rich
from
my
labors
since
i was stopped
at
the border
by
your
national security force
who
after
caging
me
and
my children
set me free
can’t tell you about my children
but
i suspect
they
nor
i
will be harvesting
your crops
this year
but
from
what
i hear
you won’t
need
them picked
because
of
the trade war
something ’bout
no nation being able
to
afford
what you planted
so
that
stuff
is just gonna
rot
but
not to worry
you’ll still get
your
government
crop welfare check

becoming the beast
taking your weapon killing
