Bullets


Bullets have no name in a game of charades;
they rain on parades of guns and berets
and aviator shades.
And with the sunrise
headlines
invade roadside
diners and truckstops
-promoting carnage and carrion to go with your coffee
while this generation
is generating
veneration
for hate
and devastation
dropped bombs
and chainsaws
believe in salvation
for a nation
under God,
and In God We Trust!
war is a must
to defend what is just
with a
CLICK-CLICK
crashing calamity
this clash of humanity
in this valley of ashes
takes me back
to a black night
cloaked in the shadows
of a blacker day
when i lay in wait
with bated breath
and nothing left
but blood on my hands
blood thats slowly dripping;
-I can hear that steady
drip
drip
drip
as it drips past my finger tips
finger tips that fumble to grip
slipping time
as it
slip
slip
slips
past a crack in the hourglass
and into eternity

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
