DISREALITY
(9/14/06)


how do
we do it?

how
do we
wake up
day after day
and face
our self-created
world of
illusion?

for the
most part
that which we fear
and causes us
ceaseless anxiety
and severe strife
is that
which we have
manufactured
for our own
insanity

religion
education
government
employment
entertainment
marriage
holidays
habits
and traditions
are of our own making
yet we worship them
as if they emerged
from the womb
of God
and not
from the twisted
perceptions
or our own
haunted
humanity

love
hate
birth
death
health
sickness
and disasters
aplenty
both on personal
and global scales
do not seem enough
to keep our wandering
sensibilities satisfied
to the utmost

so
we create
a muddling madness
to satisfy our sick
daily requirements
for diversion
and then are
incensed
at the insinuation that
WE
are the cause
for our multitudes
of malaise

and while
our whine
is fine
don't be
so surprised
when certain individuals
laugh at our rules
and flip The Finger
at our conventions
because they see
the loopholes
in the logic
of shame
which we
have
sired

smile and
let them pass
to find their own
onerous burdens
of beliefs
since
they will not
last long
without
them

they too
are human
and eventually
will suffer
in kind
