Before super models
Ruled the earth
There were people.
Before idiots
Controlled
The government
There were wise men.
The future

Is now

The past.
Desolate faces
Ride subway trains & buses without
Hope. Hoping.

And politics
Has become

A children’s

Game.
While going down

On Madison Avenue
The persuaders,

Manipulators & Predators Worship

In churches

Of nothingness.
In churches

Of shit.
The media

Ignoring What is To come

And be.
Because it’s Bad for publicity

And bad

For business.
That these truths

Are self-evident.
That people

Are dying

Over oil reserves

In the Middle East.
That people

Are being denied
Their rights.

That No one has

The balls to
Stop the maniacs

Who’ve taken over

Our lives.

So just accept it.

Relax.

Buy a coke
And a smile.
As the lights
In your child’s
Eyes

Dim.

Fade.

And go out.
