A country 

A country unable to see its own disease 

can not bring democracy nor peace, 

rather spread its own illness

through

more schools for less education

homeless shelters to call home

history lessons without history

pens afraid to write of darkness.

Blood for oil 

stains our,

streets 

homes

hospitals 

hollywood 

music 

nightclubs 

shiny things

created poverty 

truth 

politicians 
uniforms

guns

planes 

bombs

democracy.

The maddows of this country will stop at nothing to justify self serving laws 

spewing hatred 

progandas as they try desperately to hold the tent of the circus together 

lest we see

the diseases destroying this country 

minds of the young 

eyes unable to see

a flag stained with death.

Gods in a bottle

I apologize, some have told me they are unable to read this piece through the link I provided. Here is the prose. 

Pharmaceutical companies

erected like gods

to manage the masses

never the,

sickness

pain

trauma

addiction

hunger,

sleepless nights

stress

on the streets

society bleeds hopelessness through a needle.

Minds held hostage by a pill,

unable to think

there’s an app for that

overdosed

prayers come in milligrams and doses,

dazed,

unable to see inner cities burning

neighborhoods crumbling

children searching for a drug to make life bearable,

numb

remedies

dark

cold

empty,

Wars on drugs

ushered in the need for higher doses?

Solutions sold for gods in a bottle.

Pied piper

Pied piper…
From birth to grave 

for centuries elitists

condemn what they create,

privilege for skin color

wars

colonization

cleansing

illusions of democracy 

poverty 

drugs

culture isolations

hatred,

race baiting,

would you have known you were black unless they told you?

would I have seen color unless they told me what that was?

Would I have known I was white unless they told me?

Would you have known I was white unless they told you I was?

Definitions of 

color

races 

cultures

given meaning through 

planted seeds

words

movies 

newspapers 

music

education.

Minds

emotions saturated with 

still images

birth divisions 

through narratives 

hysteria has way

separated by bait

no longer facts 

hatred erodes 

educated with memes 

fear them

feel this

think this

talk this way 

see them this way

follow for I know what 

color

race

culture 

war

poverty 

privilege for skin color is

we designed the system but 

hate one another for this 

give life to this systems creation

So,

From birth to grave elitists

have their way 

for new

color wars

culture wars

colonization wars

religious wars

drug wars

poverty wars

education wars

wage wars

privilege wars

hunger wars

humanities self inflicted wars against humanity itself

brought to you by self appointed Demi Gods.
