Bunker Down

Mister negative
cashing his 30k
check.
Stock
piles
for the
day, while
gaining more,
and more.
Complaining,
of king
and castle.
In this, great
nation
of ours.
Clobbering
hopes,
dreams,
anything
that doesn’t
benefit,
his needs
his wants
for, he needs
what he wants.
His mouth,
full,
breaking bones,
of lost ones,
who-
gotta
getta
job.
No
good,
lazy
bums,
feeding
off,
Amerika.

Humpty Dumpty

Thump!
Thump!
Thump, through
Prague square.
Rocking,
West-
ern
Invasion.

Golden arches
celebrate,
Oppression’s
end.

Crowds
flock
pecking
tiny
tid-
bits
tossed
into
gnarled
hands,
faces
splintered,
with
liberty.

Across,
the Clock,
towers-
and we, walk
within,
Freedom’s
reign.

Life 101

Greedy Gus
is on the move.

disciples,
gullible
graspers,
gaining
nothing.

Towers that fall,
monuments to,
false
idols, of
ethereal

this
ninety nine.

Hollow
hearts
held,
captive.
Meaningless!

Chasing
wind, while
closing,
always
be
closing.

Eyes,
to those,
covered rags,
you pass by
on your
way,
to your
Rolls.

Summer Fun

Walking.

Rain steams-
off
my
body.

Empty
beaches,
Bottles
strewn.

Closed
doors.
Silent
streets.

Droplets,
magnifying-
Human
debris.

Sky
fire
blinds.
Hides.
Distorts.

Passing
others-
huddled,
hidden.

Always
struggling,
grasping,
for
life.

Walking,
seeing-
