Interrupted

I chatted with a chickadee today
as swallows swooped about for juicy bugs,
unsure of what he truly had to say
politeness prompted several smiling shrugs.
Although his words were gibberish to me
I still enjoyed the lilting of his voice,
that magical and timeless melody
announcing: 'Spring is here, Rejoice, Rejoice!'
but then a noxious beast went roaring by
it's song so loud the ground began to shake
vibrations ringing right up through my feet
compelling my new friend to seek the sky
and leaving me alone to face the ache
that's stifling my heart with every beat.

Decisive

Some elect to win
some to let the din
determine who is right
they see no need to fight
but this is how I feel:
if you decide to kneel
then you deserve the pain
the oligarchs who reign
will force on you once they
purloin election day.

Gotta Love It

In the name of love they'll scold you
if you deny their truth
then try their best to mold you
especially the youth.

In the name of love they'll rule you
demanding you comply
so certain they can fool you
with a caring battle cry.

In the name of love they'll will you
to mindlessly obey
then smile as they kill you
when you refuse to play.

Unbending

We all have the right to exist
With one controversial twist:
Who gets to say
What isn't okay?
(If you get the extent of my gist.)

The system is certainly broke
When innocent people must choke
On lies that protect
The foul who elect
To make God's creation a joke.

Factual

The fools that simply cannot wait
for moguls to manipulate
their sentiments with scripted death
behold the box with baited breath
believing every lie that streams
bedazzled as the anchor beams
condemning those who merely played
the role for which their bosses paid
to make it seem like circumstance
so they can stealthily advance
their program to eradicate
any who oppose the state.

Comradeship

The times they are precarious
our leaders are nefarious
and try to force the people to comply
with power grabbing policies
and fabricated fallacies
attempting to convince us to deny

our diligence and piety
so all their impropriety
can culminate in one audacious coup
and if we don't retaliate
it will indeed be much too late
then freedom as we know it will be through.

Straggler

That scaly grayish creature looms
above me like a curse
whose silent condemnation booms
repulsive and perverse

but I can't let it pierce my heart
or make my love wax cold,
ignored, this pest will soon depart
as clearing skies unfold.

Common Core

It started with an apple
and now it seems we grapple
with unhealthy appetites that go unchecked;
you can't ignore The Father
then say 'What a bother!'
when everything is liberally wrecked,

remember: we were granted
a chance to skirt the planted
scenario which brought us naught but pain
until someone's desire
exploited by a liar
birthed the Matriarch of those less wise than vain.

Never Ending

The fellowship I seek
among the truly meek
is shattered by the shriek

of those who shun all shame
advancing every aim
anathema to His name

so they can feel content
when time is better spent
attempting to repent

as I'm inclined to do
awash in endless rue
but then what else is new?

Equality

Civics be damned
their rights will be rammed
right down your throat
as they smugly gloat

but we must not wilt
or buckle to guilt
for everyone's born to fight wrongful scorn.

Branding

In olden days a metal rod was bent
to form a letter or familiar shape
they seared upon a beast to represent
their ownership; they'd watch the wisps escape
as dull red iron marred reluctant flesh
and smirk, their domination well assured,
for as new calves were marked they had their fresh
additions to an ever growing herd.
Today they're much more clever with control
proffering chains the tame perceive as chic
because they trust the rancher's caring eyes;
but once you buy the brightly packaged lies
the smell of burning meat will surely reek
as they lay claim to your eternal soul.

Puppet Show

Our handlers perpetuate
this legacy of pointless hate
they pay their queen to instigate
the ignorant to be irate

it's time for everyone to see
the strings they pull with gruesome glee
convincing us we're somehow free
and most of all - ignore that b!

Seventh

He always makes me smile
as I watch him learn and grow
adopting his own style
just makes me love him so
almost to the point of tears
has it really been seven years?

Conclusive

The nature of reality
eludes the grasp of one like me
I know I see and hear and touch
but is it real? I'm not so much

convinced that what we comprehend
is all there is, as some contend,
though I have never rectified
just what it is that tends to hide

beyond our meager range of sight
(I'm simply not that erudite)
but in my heart I feel one thing
the peace that only love can bring.

Savy Tavi?

You will don
what I've got on
conformity is air
you have no choice
just heed my voice
and I will lead you there
androgyny
is bound to be
the lack of self we share
they'll televise
my stylish lies
till I begin to wear.
