Before We Walk or Swim or Contemplate

Now, before we walk through
Plate glass windows or choose
To swim in barbed wire seas
Full of message in a bottle molotov cocktails
Served shaken like epileptic sailors
Upon catatonic cruiseships,

Let us all take a moment to
Contemplate the fragility
Of the landscape
Ego eggshells and the growing crevice
Between corrupt consciousness
And the evolution of the caterpillar
From larve to corporate whore.

And I say
And I say
And I say

A men.

Now, most of us never spend a day of our lives searching for anything more than our car keys or telephones

Like a television series stretched from one season to seven
The plot is sometimes lost amongst us all.

It takes a pretty face to shake the collection box and make the public smile while contributing

Taught with ideas that are bred to misrepresent, is it any wonder that the kid standing before the class is just target practice for rest.

Sickness, this city, this suburb, this small town sliding into the sewers
As the rivers roll and the mud flows and the gutters collect
Insurance checks that will never be cashed.

This is more of the obvious less
It is the lesson most left off the agenda last,

And I say
And I say
And I say

A men.
