injustice survives and thrives

professionals disagree, each to their degree
the honors bestowed upon minds of brilliance
chained to the doctrine of clubs, social, school
we will not agree, other than to disagree

not to build that bridge to close the gaps
between separated minds and epiphany
do not crumble the ivory towers hiding
truth of injustice left untold to unfold

maintenance of the status quo elusive
a mirage suggesting change loses
play the cards and pull the poker
a bluff populace again the joker

i came alone

walking the streets
everywhere I meet
even on the Internet
a virtual superhighway

rest stops don’t exist
peace from calamity disguised
there is no place to go
nowhere to run and hide

the parade of messages
to condition my mind
to furnish my emotions
to answer the final prayers

sell me, sell me,
i am not my own
just another commodity
to push and pawn or own

the burning bush

we took him so literally
the bush of fire that spoke
little we knew of psychosis
and verbosity it spew

laid before the maiden fair
upon the heated desert fire
the insanity of man’s mind
claimed more than retired

the species onset to course
slavery of a different mind
to ideals and ‘voices’ called god
the alpha, the omega

she was on fire!
