Pied Piper

When the idiots tire of hearing their own voices,

clanging, hollow noises,

peace and wisdom will reign.

… Little chance, alas.

Sadly the idiots are the most confident people

and they have risen to the highest positions in our world.

They are our leaders and teachers, our movers and shakers,

our celebrities, our “everything”,

fools and tools, we call them “stars”

and they guide us

further into the abyss.

Chile Protests

Politicians and media impressed,

it was a peaceful protest:

Marchers clanging pots and pans,

banging drums,

waving banners and flags.

Message stated,

message heard.

Peaceful protest.

Ch 7, USA

I’m worn out, drained,

I’ve had enough…

When are you going to go back

to being

peripheral?

Pivo, Escape, Sleep

Pain overcomes brain.

Need relief, need to escape,

or obliterate.

Old Bayern

I pull the door shut

to give myself some space.

Stale air, after all,

is better than no air.

Mormon Tabernacle Choir 2

Like a church choir singing…

How many of us *truly* believe the words we say?

Fetal Position 2

Quiet desperation?

Somewhat true,

my pain manifests quietly

on the outside,

like: I don’t want to talk,

as,

explaining pain

hurts some more again.

I sigh,

and walk away.

Inside though,

is a cacophony

of grotesque,

blasting noise,

on and on and on,

torturing,

deafening

and deadening

my soul.

Тег мокрая

Allegedly, apparently, or possibly

(depending on who’s telling me),

I’ve become something

I used to despise.

And,

I don’t care.

You don’t think you’re asking much,

but really you are.

Your words are cheap,

mine expensive.
