colourless green ideas sleep furiously.
a small mercy has your skin crawling.
wondrous awe is not all that great.
an idea rains heavily.
have some straight-up gibberish. cheers Noam

It's time to contemplate
the twilight of post-modern idols
- An Ideal
can we live for one?

We lay out what we stand for
in simple platitudes
then spend all our time
defining what we're not
despite all the death done
in its name
Protecting Freedom's
just an umbrella
replace "carpet bomb families"
with "neutralize enemies"
- who threatened our Liberty

but that means
sway elections away from those
that reject economic puppetry
Cut the cord
if you want us to buy Contras
Reaganomics define
Drug War: Sold *****,  
bought guns from Iran,
fund death squads
in Nicarag-Hooah!

Freedom's lambs
they had to die
They tried to reach out
against exploited workers
so even Catholic priests
got murked
Yes, murdered
but also muddied
in the waters of
historiography's story
As in, no one studies history

Today's armchair historians
they just find bargains
and hero worship
while they channel surf
Pulled by yachts
they don't make waves
Oceans abound but
most just coast
in creeks and canals
No Wake Zones
Think you're woke, bro?
You just came up
with a narrow strait thought
that was simply dismissed
by Heraclitus of Ephesus
nearly three millennia ago
Your certainty of knowing
brings danger of you drowning
Cause "Ever-newer waters flow
on those who step into the same rivers."

All I know is fire
so burn a hen for Prometheus
and we'll topple poser's podiums
then yoga flame them back to oneness

Cause after horrific mediation
and barring off public relations
You'll catch me drunk playing video games
with butchers and their daughters

Will this be the summer of our discontent
Or must we wait for more to understand
The dusty red and blue have merged
Whilst grasped in business' firm hand
The last of the lavender party politicians
The dawn of an enlightened age
Brought about by peaceful demonstration
Compassion replacing our rage
It's time rise and unite,
Time to balance the books
Time to listen to Chomsky
Time to trial the real crooks
Time to understand the state
Sees you as the enemy
it's generous, docile tax cow
Time for the remedy
A positive equal future awaits
Regardless of colour, age or gender
A resource based economy
Without need for ****** splendour
Sure,  it won't happen overnight
And Rome was not  built in a day
But today is the day to begin the fight
Leading our children to a better way
A way of life,  not slaves for rent
A devotion to knowledge and peace
A disposal of our disposable lives
Where we all are the same chess piece

— The End —
