Our Technology In The Hungry World - Poem by Sean Joyce

The children on the dark forgotten line
The line outside the side that has the dosh
The dosh that was intended for the stuff
the stuff of which there never is enough

Enough to feed the ones that are not us
Enough to clip invested interests first
Enough to care but not to care enough
Enough, Enough, Enough, Enough, Enough

I splattered on our boots and on the line
I spotted yours but you did not see Mine
I spotted Mine hung up there in a tree, with
eyes and nose and mouth and bits on me

Almost anything is cheaper than a script
Almost any passing guilt will work the till
Almost any fool’s Reality will thrill
Almost anything you find puts 'content' in

we click their laughing faces and move on
we satellite their trauma ‘round the world
we let our readers pick out which one dies
we leave them to starvation and to flies

    when u realize that the only way
    we can do anything about this situation is to become top notch 5star porno stars
    the world is a messed up place since folks would rahter concern themslves with
    clipping coupons than save the lives of children living in mounds of discarded junk
    that we become soldiers to defend the right to consume and fuss over our junk
    that it all gets covered with squamous cells
    that i must say i want to know what ur wearing
    i am wondering if your a vegetarian that eats game
    and someone that is into s&m finally
    i have met someone that enjoys to see the woman participating
    and wants to be control and have restraining orders on his ass
    someone who wants to not give me a choice in surrendering and i at times dont give in
    but u take over for better $ez
    i like that
    i like the way u make out with me in ur pad in mexico city while i scrub ur floors with bubbles while u r watching my boobies jiggle
    and i like the way we go to the zoo and u pin me up against where the lions r
    and give me deep throat
    the most u can get away with in this situation in public
    i like the way u have me brush up against u while im sititing next to u
    i like the way u u said that u do deep sub rescue
    i m always a customer waiting for my sub and i like how u watched the smurfs
    with me when we was little and u wanted to be like handy when u grew up and like brainy too
    i like how u was there in long beach when i went down there with my family to go to catalina and stay on that boat where menudo had a concert and was keeping up everyone on the boat
    and how i felt embarrased for the folks on tv when they made fools out of themselves and how i felt self conscious watching the tv in the buf
    and how u touch my hair when i'm turned around inspecting it like a farmer inspecting a crop of corn
    and how u look good in silk boxers or (polyester for ethical reasons) how i wear them
    how u steal my bras so i have to buy new ones

    Sean. Frankly, that is a superb piece. Sentiment aside, which is itself laudable, you've pulled off a very fine poem. (Report) Reply
