untitled 10

So, it’s back to war, then.

Back to “elected” women & men
sending innocent women & men
into the bowels of unspeakable horror
to be maimed, killed,
driven insane,
while the “elected” women & men
sit in their comfortable chairs
applaud themselves
collect their fat salaries
and lie about it all.

George, Ben, Thomas, Harriet, Abe,
and all the other fathers & mothers
howling in their graves.

This is not the country
they imagined.

Sometimes I wish
zombies were real.
