shamelessly verbose blah-blah …

.

.

Fractured tears cleaving through humanity’s cheek,
billions of muted sighs escape gagged mouths unable to speak.

.

.

The callous few giggle, clinking glasses filled with blood,
the savaged many drown in the bleeding flood.

.

.

A ravaged earth bellows out in fatigued pain,
as the broth thickens on the obscene gravy train.

.

.

Conscience dumbed down by grotesque greed is layered on like rotten butter,
while these ostentatious words scurry into the bottomless gutter.

.

.

What further horrors are in store, heaving with price tags on repugnant canned shelves,
when in the midst of the ordered orgy we flay our very selves.

.

.

What can be done to treat the million festering wounds,
nothing but insipid soup clattering on charitable spoons.

.

.

We are doomed if we refuse to cower,
as the toxic rain slays the earth after every cantankerous shower.

.

.

We are doomed if we continue to cower,
suffocated by the sewage spewed from every gleaming ivory tower.

.

.

We are doomed, we are condemned, we are silenced, we are with knots of hate willingly bound,

.
we are the raucous deaf, snuffing out mother earth’s every excruciating groan, every imploring sound.
