Condoms And Instructions - Poem by Tanec Rayl

alarmed and leaking; all blows must be devastating
don't even care about CHILDREN and FAMILIES
they'd like to be edgy but offend in the minuscule
LOCATION LOCATION hit by an earthquake

if only once the reaction could be delayed
if only if only a million if onlys for all of us washed away
living here for how many thousands of years worked on
enhanced wringing hands over
carbon-free energy generational capacities

my message to those them they
get out of the bedroom and back into the kitchen
get off the faultline employ the smartest advertising people
wait for information wait to be pushed avoid
major threats to the public minimise accidents
analyse rebel compel deride any authority
carry strategic tags of secret extension
take it until you just can't anymore then
burn this
