Programmed.
Coded for

Controlled

Over all
to hear,

Sad.
Happy.
Emotions.
Ripples

Clouded
John Prophet Jan 23
View
of things.
How we
perceive.
How we
think.
Our senses,
are they enough?
Enough

truth?
Enough
to know
the true
nature of
things,
true extent
of creation
on all its
levels?
As constituted,
is the
animal able
to discern?
Discern creation.
Discern intention.

The Machine
John Prophet Jan 22
The
machine,
billions of
years in the
making.
Our very
being
to the
molecular level
fabricated,
wired,
controlled.
Controlled by
the machine,
the system.
Fabricated,
simply
fabrications
are we
by the
system.
Like machines
mired
by the
hardware
influenced
by the
software.
Products
of the
environment.
All we know
programmed.
How we’re wired
predetermined.
Everything
scripted by
the system.
The machine’s
system.
Freedom
an illusion.
All just
components.
Widgets within,
simply
functioning
as designed.

Ethereal Mist
John Prophet Jan 21
The
thinness of
things, of
reality.
Wafer thin.
Perceived
reality.
Depth lacking.
Not
textured.
Awareness
not textured,
not deep.
Not
nearly enough.
Understanding
shallow, limited.
A vapor
in the black.
Little to
work with,
much to
understand.
Primitive nature
governing,
holding
in place,
controlling events.
Unfinished business,
invisible
answers.
Beyond reach.
Easily deluded.
Paper thin the
contest.
Misinformed the
results.

Drop
John Prophet Jan 19
We are
custom made.
Custom made
for this
place,
from this
place.
What we
know,
who we
are,
what we
think,
indigenous.
Springing up
from the
core,
squeezing
through
the rocks,
out of the
mud.
Primordial scream!
Our senses,
how we relate
predetermined
by this place.
Every fiber of
our being
determined
by a mote of
dust lost
in infinity.
Programmed
by uncertainty.
Following instincts
layered
onto our
souls.
Believing
we are free.
Free in a prison,
a preprogrammed
prison on a mote
in a void.
Life in a
drop of water.
All we consider
significant
isn’t.
Here,
is where
we bubbled
up.
Here,
is where we’ll
dry up.
A puff
of dust
in the breeze.
A blow to
the ego
this is.
A little
more humility
surely applies.

End
John Prophet Jan 17
End
When
will it
end?
I do not
know.
I do not
care.
Each moment
a miracle.
Each moment
a universe.
Enjoy every
snowflake,
every sunset,
every
bird song.
Infinite in
nature.
Not to be
missed.
Focus.
Focus on
all,
all that
surrounds.
Never
to be seen
again.
Never
to be
felt again.
Each moment
a gift,
not to be
squandered.
Once gone,
gone for good.
Each moment
happy or
sad, unique.
Each individually
unique.
Can’t be
shared.
Oblivion.
Inevitable
oblivion
soon enough.
Appreciate the
infinite
within.
Never to
be again.

Always there.
Always has been.
Holding firm,
controlling.
System set

Simply
arranged
that way.
Designed to
stay alive,
move things
along.
Flowing
through the
machine,
lubricating.
Covering
the

Gets in
the way ,
altering
judgement.
Pushing buttons,
clouding the
soul.
Cares not
for societal
norms.
Never had to,
why start
now?
Blue Genie.
Constant
struggle.
Constant
struggle to
hold at
bay!

Freedoms Illusion
John Prophet Jan 14
Freedom,
what is it?
How free?
Original thought,
does it exist?
Is it rare?
My mind,
filled
with what was
poured in.
I could
believe
many things,
based on what
was poured in.
Where I was
born determines
what I
believe.
Local dogma
clouds my reality,
determines
what I
believe,
how I think.
I could be
many people,
believe many
things based
on what was
poured in.
Once the
cake’s baked,
fully formed,
how free
can it
possibly be?

Pulsing
John Prophet Jan 13
Civilizations built.
Decisions made.
Billions
of decisions!
Whether to
turn left,
whether to
turn right,
whether to
go straight.
Each has
consequences.
Energy
pulsing off
the planet.
Each second
decision energy
layering history.
Butterfly effect
a billion times
a second.
Second after
second, billions
upon billions
of decisions
made.
Decisions,
energy
pulsing into
the void.
History.
Human history
being built
as such.
Each decision
flows to its
own
unique future.
Billions of
unique
futures born
each second.
Second after
second.
Such is the
conundrum of
quantum mechanics.
Such is the
conundrum
of infinity.

Enjoyment
John Prophet Jan 8
Here,
we are all
here.
Don’t know
how.
Don’t know
why.
Fact remains,
we are all
here.
Men,
women
everybody.
Look around.
What to do?
What to do
with this
brief flash?
This brief
flash
of existence.
Power,
control,
at each other’s
throats.
Power,
control, all
just puffs
of dust.
Instantly,
just puffs
of dust.
What’s the
point?
Spending this
briefest
flash of
existence
at each other’s
throats.
Seems absurd.
Spend the
time in
enjoyment
peaceful enjoyment.
A brief flash
of enjoyment.
Seems to make
sense to me.

Jungle
John Prophet Jan 6
Pheromones
wafting,
hormones
charging.
Pulsating energy
abounds.
The jungle
breaths.
Rules apply,
wound inexorably
through countless
millennium.
Firmly ensconced.
Sophisticated
ignorance.
The animal
confused.
Confused
about
its place.
Confused
about what
it is.
The din
of the
jungle
beats within.
The beast.
Humanity
growls,
no different
from the rest.
Pheromones

Wave
John Prophet Jan 3
Like a rolling
wave.
Generation after
generation
marching.
Marching to
oblivion.
Still they
come.
Conveyor belt
of humanity,
inexorably
crashing
on earthen
shore.
Each drop
irrelevant,
yet part
of larger
whole.
Each drop
lost in
time, yet
played its
role.
Each had
its time.
Its time
in the
light.
Then
in a blink,
each succumbed.
Forfeiting to
inevitability,
settling
into the
textured
substrate
of history.
Where
it all goes?
They’ll
never know.
Such is
their lot
in
reality.

Spun tight

Spun tight

Spun tight
in our
brainwash.
Spun tight
in a world
awash in
ignorance.
Dealing with
a reality
not understood.
Convictions
evolved to make
sense.
Make sense
of what the
senses allow,
of the
jungle that
surrounds.
Evolved to
relieve angst,
have something
to hold on to,
cling
to in the
maelstrom.
Parroting
nonsense
generation
to generation.
Believing all
that’s
told.
Blinded with
local thought,
local prejudice.
Firm in our
acceptance.
Beliefs from
a dearth of
knowledge.
So sure.
So sure,
with no
reason
to be.
Infancy

Barren
John Prophet Dec 2019
Barren.
Nowhere to go.
Limited.
Exploration proved
limited.
Science failed,
found no answers.
No way to travel
beyond local space.
Dead planets,
hunks of rocks.
Clinging to lifeless
radiation drenched
rocks.
Useless.
Could not
recreate Eden.
Looking out,
found no one,
nothing,
useless.
Looked within.
Began looking
within.
Within technology.
Within
virtual space.
Space with no

Created realms.
All,
Gardens of Eden.
No rules to
bog down.
Bog down
exploration.
No speed limits,

Be anywhere
instantaneously.
With a thought

All went within.
Within
the machines.
Became one
with the virtual.
Crossing barriers,

Crossing dimensions.
virtual all.
Controlling time.
No limits,
personal paradise.
Found them.
That’s where

Everyone was

Time,

commodity.
Precious.
Most precious

Taken for

Daily,

Increasing in

Slipping through
the grasp.
Cannot

Cannot

Relentless

Reaching

Bane

Pushing

When they arrive.
Arrive spatially
from afar,
temporally
or dimensionally.
How
would they
be?
How
are they
organized?
What would
they see?
How would
they think,
relate?
No commonality.
None.
No thread of
connection.
None.
What will
we do?
Evolve!

Reflect
John Prophet Nov 2019
Reflection.
Look around.
What
do you
see?
Are you
sure?
A terrarium,
living in a
terrarium.
Rules
laid out.
Materials
in place.
All that’s
needed.
Needed by
terrarium dwellers.
Accept
what is seen.
Function
accordingly.
Big time,
self impressed.
Power,
dominate,
fight to
survive.
Born,
live,
die.
Question not.
Do your part,
move on.
Terrarium
dwellers need
not reflect.
Need not
contemplate.
Do your
job then
depart.
The lot of
a terrarium
dweller

Osiris and Anubis
John Prophet Oct 2019
Gods
of distant past.
Temples built,
prayers,
devotions,
offerings made.
Millions born
then die
believing.
Time
moves on,
new beliefs
emerging.
New gods
to adore.
Evolution
of beliefs,
mankind’s
enduring quest.
What to believe?
What is truth?
Where is truth?
When is truth?
Is it coming?
Has it been?
Is man
capable of
knowing
truth?
New reality.
Always new
realities.
Coming faster
all the time,
coming faster.
Faster and faster.
What to believe?
What truth
to believe?
Who’s truth
to believe?
Seduction
of technology,
future god
to billions

Before
John Prophet Oct 2019
A time
before.
Before
instant
connections.
Instant access.
Instant entanglement.
Knowing others
thoughts
instantly.
Before.
Before,
silence
abounds.
Minds­ encircled
in silence.
Cocoon.
Unique thoughts,
personal thoughts,
slow thoughts,
quiet thoughts,
little interference.
Little interactions.
Like never
before,
new
interactions,
interconnections.
Like never
before.
Cocoons
obliterated.
Laid bare.
Connections,
light speed
connections.
Minds melding,
influencing,
formatting,
different.
Global,
new ways
of thinking
like never
before.
Shattering
reality,
the past,
like never
before

Words
John Prophet Oct 2019
Words,
packets of
thought.
Bullets
of meaning.
From mind
to mind
transversed.
Greatest invention.
Without, others
never
to be.
Words
as weapons,
power to
lie, destroy.
Words
as medicine,
power to
heal, comfort.
Words
as art,
power to
engage, captivate.
Words,
power to
mislead,
manipulate,
control.
Vigilant,
always vigilant
with the
power of
words.

Gamesmanship

Outside
looking in.
Seeing
differently,
apart from.
Observing

discerning
rules.
Questioning
motiva­tions.
Why?
Why things
happen as
they do.
Fish bowl
etiquette,
rules unique.
Rules
as to
gamesmanship.
In the

to all.
All interact
according to
rules,
rules
laid down
long ago.

Floating
John Prophet Oct 2019
Floating!
I float.
I float
through
existence.
Watching things
floating by.
Swirling currents
move,
move
me along.
Dream like
I observe
what seems
to be.
Accepting
what I see?
Wondering.
Wondering
if deeper
realities
are in play?
Wondering
how
I came
to be?
Wondering
why
I came
to be?
Answers
elusive,
never to be.
I float forward,
forward to

Clash
John Prophet Oct 2019
The clash.
Biology
calling the
shots.
Moving the
animal.
Moving the
animal in
the intended
direction.
Coding irresistible
forces, forcing
compliance.
Intricate dimensions
to the process.
Process of
control.
Planting the
seed of
irresistibility.
The scent,
the look,
the sound,
the movement.
All, finely
tuned.
Finely tuned for
maximum results.
Millions of
years in
the making.
Love, affection,
what to make
of love and
affection?
Surly different.
Beautiful things.
Things to
cherish.
Things to
hold close.
Things that
make life worth
living.
Things that
help control
the process,
grease
the skids,
move things
along.
Generation
to generation.
The subtlest
control of
all.

Takeover
John Prophet Sep 2019
Insidious.
The plan
was insidious.
Used
successfully
planet to
planet.
Slowly
taking over.
Slow
subjugation.
The invasion,
in no rush.
Pieces
put in place
on a
global scale.
Predetermined
embryos,
coded.
Coded instructions,
preprogrammed
to activate when
ready.
Embryos placed
around the
globe.
Thousands implanted.
Born
like any other.
Allowed to grow,
mature.
Ensconced in
every aspect,
every element
of society.
When triggered,
no one
knew.
Positions
of power.
Altering
trajectories,
changing
social discourse.
Moving to
a place
where total
control
was achieved.
Sep 2019 · 30
Seed
John Prophet Sep 2019
Wrapped in a
reality.
All that we
know and
understand.
Ensconced in
this seed.
How we
behave,
what we
believe,
how we
perceive.
Born in
this place
wrapped tight
where we are.
Reflection of
our soul.
Opened our
eyes and here
we are.
Not knowing
how
or why.
Moving through,
self righteous
we become.
Understanding
nothing
of the
why
of things.
Pondering,
self reflection
lacking in
our veins.
Accepting
all that is
seen.
Question.
Question everything.
Nothing is
as it
seems.
Sep 2019 · 64
Digital Invasion
John Prophet Sep 2019
Right in front
of our
eyes.
We stare.
We stare
at screens.
All day long,
we stare at
screens.
This is new.
This is
different,
like
never before.
Glow of
information
streams,
streams to
our eyes
into our
minds.
Like never
before.
We’re changing.
Information
manipulation.
The mind
being
reshaped.
Thinking being
altered.
Battle lines
being drawn.
Manipulation
on a
global scale.
Invasion
into our
humanity.
Invasion
into our
souls.
Forces beyond
control.
Invasion!

Howling
John Prophet Sep 2019
Howl.
Into the
night, howl.
Howl.
Howl.
Looking out,
out into the
abyss.
Since the
first twitch
life has been
vocal.
Howling into
the dark.
Searching
for others.
Primal
at first.
Desirous of
contact.
Desirous of
knowledge.
Wanting to
know,
to know
what’s
out there.
Wanting to
know,
who’s listening?
Who’s
listening to
the howl?
Who will
Respond?
Silence.
Nothing but
silence.
No one is
listening.
No one will
respond.
We howl
into emptiness.
We howl at
nothing.
We are
alone.
Alone
in the
void.
Alone
with
ourselves!
