“WE’RE AMAZING!*” a poem * – And Becoming Even More So! 12/28//18 (FRI)
BLOCKED! I AM! from-my Tumblr Site;
It ISN’T personal!? So, it’s-ALL-RIGHT?!
So UPTIGHT, “TIGHT,” we-have-become,
That-we-trust-computers?! which-have- made-us-“dumb?!”
We SHOCK ourselves – with-electric-devices!
To stop our brains – from all these crises!
ELECTRO – SHOCKING – THER – APY,
With-tons-of pills – from Phar – ma – a – c -ee,
BECAUSE – our conscience – is a MESS,
BECAUSE we-went to war – AND SHOT,
Some soldier “foe(s)” we could have caught,
And held-secure in-a jail, tight,
To-force-STARVATION! -as-our-sheer-delight! (long pause)
When upset fathers – f – – -their daughters,
From-the-fine-sons, which they have birthed,
Can’t-explain-(The)-Mysteries – of this-HERE-LIFE!
The-Gospel-of-Thomas – cuts-like-a-knife?
To-expose-THE NERVE! of religious-greed,
Which-we CLING-TO – as a “need!”
And-as-we-pollute – and desecrate,
This Planet Earth, which we MUST hate,
Else WHY would we exploit IT so?
And THEN – declare (that)-we-do-NOT-know,
Our hearts and minds – DO-seek George Bailey,
FOR ANSWERS! and! for Christmas cheer;
THE FOURTH DAY’S COME! LET’S DRINK MORE BEER!
fin ? ❤
Nerve Ending #1:
AND WHY WE DO MOST THINGS WE DO?!
We MUST admit – WE HAVE NO CLUE!
But – it-DOES-seem-critical – to BLOCK this poet!!
We block OURSELVES! Yet seldom know-it!
And-our -“cock-sure-surenss” seldom rests,
We yearn – for HAPPY, with smiles – NO FROWNS!
And-you-tell-me – We are MORE than clowns?
Nerve Ending #2:
We-think-we-can-hide – from-our-CLOWN-i-NESS!
By declaring: “In-some-IMAGE-we-have-GOD-LI-NESS!”
Well, HIDE AWAY! Ye GOVERNMENT CENSORS,
Ye BLACK WEB JOKERS! and DRUG-CARTEL-(BORDER)-FENCERS!
There is NO TRUTH, with these-here rhymes?
Never Ending #3:
And-we-wonder WHY – cancer’s-ALL-AROUND!
Yet-in-The-Purest-Baby – IT-IS ALSO FOUND,
But is “held at bay,” by-(baby’s)-im-mun-ity,
OR – some-GUARDIAN-ANGEL – with-im-pun-ity!
We ‘re-superstitious-hateful – silly-and-proud,
And CLOWNS! Can-really-be, so very-loud!!
Yet-in-our-“Clown-Filled World,” I wait for (some) QUIET!
BUT CLOWNS ARE (SO) LOUD – There’s-always-a-riot!
Naive Ending #4:
Do-you-know – how-much-time-it-took – to-make-a-gun?
ALL THE MOVING PARTS? to-have SO MUCH FUN!
To: SHOOT “the enemy?” – or your spouse?
So – you could have – a QUIET house?
And-then-SHOOT-YOUR-SELF – or – your school?
And-you-tell-me OUR SPECIES – is: so cool!?
And should be preserved- saved-from-going-extinct?
When our minds are TWISTED – in perpetual “kink!”
Nerve Ending #5:
I NEED MORE CHOCOLATE! I need it NOW!
The “food of The Gods” is, simply, how,
I-shall make-it – through-another-day!
