Utter Rot—








The fish rots

from the head

looks down on the poor—rest of us

in crutches of centralized civility

demanding order

w/o provision of the basics

our needs, not desires

but still, we dare 2 want

& want

& want

& want

until we cannot wait

for this (not so) good

governance

for these our horrible and hot lives

distract us

from the ties that bind

(strangle us even)

our senior incubi and succubi

suck the life

out of mere existence

in post pandemic inertia

ill equipped for what

we are facing right now

scrabble in the dark

doing their best, or worst even,

w/o a shared set of rules

for care & conduct

unconscious

idiocy that dominates

driving us towards more

dis-ease

despair

death

& suicide of the will to live

so much so

the well-to-do,

also, are exhausted

w/ the psychology of this drama

where every ego is in it

for themselves

no keepers here

neither brothas nor sistahs

power to intimidate

concerns for immediate gain

survival

scarcity mentality of the sheeple

lawlessness

social engineering of collapse

cult of cowardice

flaunts greed

favoritism

cronyism

our

downfall

all this—

aspects of living

in a dying world

deliberate depressive

instigation

intentionality of destruction

impositions

no master signifiers

hold us together

all is loss

of faith

of connection

of trust

of belief in fellow humanity

slaves to desire

pomp and circumstance convoys

cause havoc on earth

under the guise of a return

to normalcy

absent

of unity of understanding

what is

true

real

right relationship

for us all.
