Have a Happy Holocaust


In the wake of mass destruction
Initiated by the architects of
Non-cyclic foresight-blind
Nonsensical corruption of the
Leveled growing fields, and clearcut
Soul abduction it makes one's stomach
=46eel ill=8Aill in the guts
Where they say courage is
Supposed to reside!

Where nightmares cannot hide
Here in Kerouac's Frisco
Where the children still cry,
=46orgotten amidst piles of
Garbage getting off with
Acting human and walking!
In the dark day of night-time's
Inner struggle.
Beating ourselves to death
In lieu of wounds imagined but
Real however distant they may appear.
Riding their frozen god's
Name on the little bus-
In the rear.
Taking a back seat to lost causes
Like liberty, and human rights,
The human fights, they can't
Afford to lose! Another day
Another fight, another right
Righteous famine wrought from
Righteous decay.
Complacent, programmed decay
Welcome to Mr. Disneyville honor
Camp for progressives, may we
Help you? Repressed-press!
Blessed-stressed!
Depressing!!!
I watch the red and black taxi
Turn a ragged right on what's
Left of the great shopping mall
Earth. You can scrape jizz off
The walls at Frenchy's for eight
Bucks an hour, or watch the
Vietnamese brickmen lay fresh
Blood blocks down the block of
Pain, and there ain't no chance.

Struggles are breaks in the
Mundane. Hums of outdated transport
Modules called cars, and bums
On earthmall.
Everybody's got problems,
The anthem of repetitive droneyism;
Shark-eyes in tricks head scour
Pain Street for delightfully
=46resh tweaker-boyz to assist
One another in the right reaping
Of the great god Bacchus.
Shit fermented into the cracks
Of pavement, passing hookers, cops
Crooks, crack, crackers, tightly
Rapped plastic rappers, child trappers
Hurts, nerds and megaturds.
Turrets, torrents in our beds
In our heads self-imposed
Deflected inward ricochets.
Houses of word mirrors construct
Instruct, get fucked! Recognized
As self on a shelf an upward
Elf Berieved with wealth. Sam Spade
No shade, shelter winter swelter
Healthcareless helter skelter
Twanging guitars entwined too
Much wine-I'm fine.
