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.

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!

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?

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.
