A country unable to see its own disease
can not bring democracy nor peace,
rather spread its own illness
more schools for less education
homeless shelters to call home
history lessons without history
pens afraid to write of darkness.
Blood for oil
The maddows of this country will stop at nothing to justify self serving laws
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.
I apologize, some have told me they are unable to read this piece through the link I provided. Here is the prose.
erected like gods
to manage the masses
on the streets
society bleeds hopelessness through a needle.
Minds held hostage by a pill,
unable to think
there’s an app for that
prayers come in milligrams and doses,
unable to see inner cities burning
children searching for a drug to make life bearable,
Wars on drugs
ushered in the need for higher doses?
Solutions sold for gods in a bottle.
I had originally written this piece about Connecticuts opioid problem but can see this spreads far beyond.
Connecticut ranked 5th in opioid overdoses, however that number may change due to the recent deaths.
To anyone that is able to read this. Thank you in advance!! Always greatly appreciated
From birth to grave
for centuries elitists
condemn what they create,
privilege for skin color
illusions of democracy
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?
given meaning through
emotions saturated with
hysteria has way
separated by bait
no longer facts
educated with memes
talk this way
see them this way
follow for I know what
privilege for skin color is
we designed the system but
hate one another for this
give life to this systems creation
From birth to grave elitists
have their way
humanities self inflicted wars against humanity itself
brought to you by self appointed Demi Gods.
