Consumerism Prison


Pay the infomercial man
as best you can

Tis well worth the price
to upgrade your bland life
with the latest hi tech gadgetry
that will eventually be
as obsolete as you

and your insecure

brand of humanity

Lose Lose Scenario


In this cynical
political environment
the numb electorate
no longer gives a flying fuck
about candidate morality

Ethics and politics
when the two are mixed
beget the ultimate oxymoron

Crooked is an accepted prerequisite

Embedded lies infect broken promises

The only ideology
is whatever brings victory
with pre packaged homilies
designed to herd lazy ass consumers
to look up from their hand held devices
and march to the voting booth

Long ago focus group wizards decreed
fear is the optimum way to succeed

When your product is not moving
demonize the other guy

The more grandiose the lie
the best chance to grab
the market’s fleeting attention

Media outlets you can buy
to do your bidding
with costly
but efficient negative ads

So as we begin
the serious phase
of the political cycle

Prepare for the shit to fly
like a monsoon from the sky

In this corner
the demagogue incompetent
dispensing fear and hate
from his crass reality show plate

Up against
the bought and paid for
ultimate insider

Her lips chapped
from excessive suckling
at the currency teat
of special interests

At the end of this crooked road
those still with the stomach to vote
will have a poisonous choice to make

The viper or the snake

and then take a long shower afterward
to wash away the shame

trump clinton lesser of two evils

Footprints in the Sand


As the the revolution unpeels

Ugly truths are revealed

Former friends choose to repent
as they are led in chains
to the televised guillotine event

Welcome to disillusionment
as disingenuous corporate demons
clad in smug victory
hold out their slimy hands

“Join our lesser of two evils crusade”
they hiss cynically
to the numb prisoners
who really never had a chance
fighting armed only with idealism
against such an institutionally stacked deck

sell out sanders

Terms of Surrender


When I began to skim through
the tragedies of the day
over my morning coffee
and high fiber corn flakes

When I conveniently commenced
to compartmentalize and relegate
the daily fire storms of humanity
to the spam folder of my soul

When I found myself fleeing
directly to the sports section
for all the scores
of meaningless competitions
performed by sweaty
millionaire gladiators
in tax payer funded stadiums

It was then

my heart ceased to beat

and capitulation

to the cynical apocalypse

was complete

tragedy nice france

Comfortably Snug


At this point in time
tis way too late for me to be
anything other than I am

This truth affords me the luxury
of no longer having to give a damn
about living up to expectations
I never really embraced
in the first place

Once these dreams have been spent
it’s time to go about
existing comfortably content

Slow it down

Pour a glass of wine

Find that perfect sunset

and settle in for the duration

 

 

Truth Written In Pencil


What use to be before

now is no more

Nary a trace
of yesterday’s reality remains

Speculation now saturates
revisionist history
as PHD’s pontificate unrestrained
their best pet theories

After many high priced consultations
scholarly consensus now proclaims
what had passed for absolute truth
back in the day

never really was

Interpretations have been revised
to polish the textbook lies
that will exonerate departed fools

Those unyielding authorities of the past

Bone crushers of contrarian dissent

Self righteously burning all heretics

who did not salute the dogma

of a world science defined as flat

inquisitiion

Skipping The Slant


The lynch them first
ask questions later
flash mob
of micro public opinion
are polluting the stream
of social media consciousness again
with their unrelenting riled up ferocity

Quickly jumping to conclusions
that conveniently fit
an agenda ridden narrative

Their numbers swell rapidly
as hatred reposts virally
getting reported internationally
as contrived speculations
eventually mutate
into perceived fact

Til the value of truth itself
is reduced to a disposable commodity

Sold to the pliable masses
as fast cooked
easily digested
blended reality

feeding frenzy
