Paradox Plug In


There’s no such thing as sadness,
Just anger and despair,
But what pisses me off the most,
Is the fact that I don’t care.
Selective groups that work,
Open funds that don’t,
Human nature takes its course,
But good ole’ virtue won’t.
I want to be involved,
I want to be around,
I want to cause excitement,
Not muffled, garbled sounds.
So do they, I say,
Just like the outside me,
But what I don’t tell them,
Is what they need to see.
And in my quest for dominance,
My search for greatest being,
I’ve left no homeward markers,
Others, too, agreeing.
I see the precipice,
And step into the light,
But when they march on home,
My sword has no fight.
And that’s why I’m a monster,
A known teratogen,
So I seep into my dungeon,
Paradox plug in.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
