IDENTIFIABLE FLYING OBJECTS
(12/17/13)


they hover
above us
continually

all those
rationalizations
that make society
seem
like a sane
undertaking

we look
to the billboard
sky
and are able
to accept
the absurdities
of market based
economies

wars raged
to make peace

state sponsored
health care

taxes legislated
from us
for our betterment

games substituted
for reality

the madness
of make believe holidays
events
and entertainment
staged
to momentarily
distract us
from the daily
madness
in which
we are immersed

best
not to
think
too much
about the enormity
of the insanity

just keep
the eye focused
on the sleek
and shiny
faceships

ooh and ah
as seems
appropriate

clasp hands
and assholes

smile at each other
and happily pretend
that our planet
is a wonderful place

not some
lunatic asylum
for the subliminally
insane
