Opiate Gift

by Teetea

~

Crafty to a catnip had we stalked

To the same cabal and their clowns

All our votes to the treasured deck

As we gathered for their opiate gift.

~

A few handshakes of rice and bills

We gave out our powers in present

past

And for a dinner at dead men’s

square

We sundered our future to worst

of them.

~

Where you find each and everyone

Years a bum and now a knight-

Cruising in and out our naked

fronts

Draining the pipes that line our

lands

Into their private, oil wells.

~

A hundred years of wretch and

yawn

Such is the journey of our giant

state

Where the sun has set the plebeian

lord

Against the darkness of his own

hearts.

~

Now  every life measures a blank

spot

As the aimless wandering of mad

men

What of the promise of the grand

high jump

To a fairer house than living hell?

~

We fumble and wobble through

ages gone

A human herd to the slaughter

house

All heart is with power gone and

lost

Save this bitter pill – a pill

alone:

That you never again may jump at

will

Blind upon an opiate gift.
