The changes obviously suit somebody

(maybe several somebodies),

the changes, however, do not suit me,

surely I’m not alone;

I imagine I have some “kindred spirits”,

somewhere, who resist changes

which serve no good purpose for the majority

(who would realize it, if they could detach, and focus);

changes which complicate our lives yet further, and drain,

life and sanity, time and mind.

… After all, I’m only now, somewhat,

getting used to it being Summer;

why should I embrace a Fall?

Medici Famiglia_ Gio Maria Butteri

“That’s Entertainment!”

Proclaimed, harmless diversion.

… Tonight’s perversion?

Lewis Hamilton, Mudak

Alas, the relentless drive of capitalism.

Exploitation, manipulation, wasteful decadence;

for your entertainment,

and debasement.

Prison_ Chain Gang

It was nice being comrades,

but you got bored, wanted to move on,

to be precise, go back to what you used to be.

As a mother who spends “too much time” with her children, discovers that she despises them, so go you, and the majority … (apparently it’s normal today, to be a fucked-up family!)

… Sad state, this depraved, regressive progress …

But, it’s OK, I’m content to be alone, somewhat free.

Happy Birthday, me!

Kukolka

Their guilt-trip, manipulation and misinformation

does not have the desired effect and/or result.

They have a plan for me,

but I react differently,

some would say implode.

Their words pervert and contort in my mind,

twisting, molesting my very core.

Their message spoken and haunting,

induces neurosis.

Pied Piper

I don’t want to,

but it seems inescapable,

as Pavlov’s dogs,

sometimes, try as I might not to,

I dance to the loathsome set tune.

Vino 2

Puissant, in a perverted sense,

tormenting my being and essence.

Self-centered, supercilious, bloated, loathsome enemy;

daily presence, such stress is deadly.

Regardless, in peaceful times, when my mind is able,

I do what I can to detach.

And tonight, henceforth, as far as I’m concerned,

that pissant doesn’t exist.

Giftgas

Are we there yet?

The beginning of the end?

And other clichés.

… Utterly screwed,

totally confused,

you, me, and the chimpanzee.

As leaders invoke, abuse,

wartime memories:

sacrifice, heroism, bravery,

and lambs to slaughter.

… This legacy they died for?

Plyaska Smerti 1

Gimmicks and flashing lights,

distractions from life,

the essential.

Advertising and capitalism:

strange dreams implanted,

exploitation, manipulation,

dumbing-down,

constant delusions, lies,

sucking you dry,

making you demented

and infected.

Virus!

Despair_ Devushka. Alone in Rain. Sea (or Flood)

They fill your head with panic, misinformation,

rumors,

they’ve got you where they want you:

confused.

Afraid and desperate, many will do,

exactly what *they* want them to … …

(Is this the end of the world as we know it?)

… Meanwhile another storm batters,

howling winds, pouring rain:

tomorrow floods and more destruction,

ushering in,

they’re welcoming,

martial law.
