read all about it–

the latest celebrity marriage sham
the end is nigh everybody is doomed
etch it on your pitiful little brain
the vultures are circling
the rats and the roaches
are finally taking
over.

read all about it–
paedophiles on every street corner
peering in through your daughters
bedroom window
night after
night

the agony of an abduction serialized
and sold for
millions–

parents doing quite well from what
must have been a night-mare to live
through

dollar signs in place of goodnight
kisses making it easier to
forget than to
remember.

read all about it–
the latest manufactured middle eastern
war-zone

jews and muslims gods mocking
gods

keep the wars perpetual
keep the tension
tightened.

read all about it and believe
all you
read.

question
nothing.

turn the
page.

succumb.

the lost rioters

the path to enlightenment
was truly etched from
the tools of dis-
illusion.

elderly people don’t
smile–

they just look
weary.

it is better never to have
fought than to
fight and
lose

there is no victory
dance and no
day in the
sun–

not every dog
will have its
day.

the brain is a
blancmange

the heart’s a punchline
to a desperately
unfunny
joke

souls do not exist and
personalities aren’t
worth
shit.

this is the
will of
god

this is the grandest
scheme of all
things

and we are the lost
rioters.
