I cannot sleep for fear of
Anticipatory visions of November violence;
I see bloody stripes and exploding stars.
I see the arrest record of an entire nation.
Now shoot a man on suspicion.
Now arm the robots.
Little punks get around fast
but now we shoot first
eviscerate the rules of evidence
to hell with jurisprudence.
Society is a conspiracy to plunder.
Clowns on the platform,
neon sparkle distraction
the police state hero will have law and order
the revenge of angels is bloody work
A communion with death,
a Eucharist of death
drink from the chalice of gasoline,
eat the arsenic wafer.
Benevolent imperialism is a velvet-wrapped IED
nostalgia is a rose colored lie
Relax! There is so much to fear.
Relax! Or die. Relax!
Drop bombs down the chimney
to ease the excess of democracy
ask questions later
the line leads nowhere
