Reaping and Weeping

July 26, 2011

a nation led astray by drug drinking demons
no one to remind us who we are
autonomous has become automated
the dealer in ignorance is scared to show his face
but we all know it isn’t pretty
drink water, run harder, work tireless,
losing purity drop by drop
the system has a leak
i would rather sit in the oil pan
collecting stray tears
than give my push to this pedal
war in the mind, war in the new york times,
everywhere is war,
the prince of peace has been silenced
and chimps’ superiors prefer to be lab rats
dominion means destruction
when there’s no sinning
crystal glass shatters into pieces
never to hold another sip
celebration of life
or laughing at death?
