How far can one spread the knowledge about
Torture and death and destruction
on Facebook or Twitter or, shit, even Tumblr,
before people start trying to do something about it
(And no, wearing bracelets about said causes will do nothing, so cut that shit out already, please)
So, just take your monitor off of Facebook and all those porn sites, and just search around for a while
Injustice is what the Internet was made to look for
Come on, everything is free, and nothing is relative on this piece of machinery
And interconnected neural command centers
Shit, it’s not even just in a far-off country
Evil lives right here, too, in the good ole’ USA
Kids dying by the dozens in Chicago
Chiraq looking worse and worse by the day
What is there to life
if not to have some fun
and to troll and prank?
April’s Fool and Halloween; that’s all that matters, to me.
An ode to Gillian Anderson or Emma Stone or Scarlett Johansson or Trish Stratus, singular-wise, is
I’m sure no amount of words can do justice to all of those women, and all the women I don’t know, who can inspire so many with their talent and charity work and honesty, as well.
It will never be enough.
This poem sure as hell isn’t enough, I can tell you that much.
So I’ll guess I’ll write about Benedict Cumberbatch
And anything else that warpzone-fives into my mind,
A little kid goes back and forth on a swing set, no ounce of energy:
The wind’s trying to get the kid to do something,
but to no avail.
The kid wonders where to go, what to do,
with nothing in mind but a nice home,
a good place to eat,
a decent book to read,
a quiet place to sleep,
pretension to write stuff like this,
and an all right home life to keep on trucking,
A single line
a whole fucking
ma’am or sir
or whoever is out there
reading this slop
The message is the medium
for you folks out there
in TV land.
You are one of the few
that can inspire and drive crazy
rational and sane people
on a day to day basis
Stop it, stop being wonderful;
this world can’t handle much more of these soft-ass poems
about you, any more.
