I Was Once A Good Man And Other Lost Lies ~ D. James Breaux
Humanity took a nose-dive
when the art of deception made its debut
onto the world stage
and the final act
in the post-truth age,
written by the executive producers
of the downfall,
drained the final droplets of....
is it even worth it; reaching toward their
tall towers
for words that
only fail,
fail to
give an account of what they did?
Contemptible tears
don't make no flowers
grow, so
when the demons of iniquity come calling you run for your life
before the mockingbirds of
hell's lower level
coincide to steal your peace;
and then
one by one
the conventions of decorum start to fall.
Communication breakdown; game over.
They broke her.
She's unrepairable now but oh,
oh how endearing
she
was....
Lady Liberty.
And now the hopeless ones
just huddle close to the wantful
and wave bye bye
to laissez faire.
The seats are all empty on the last train to nowhere
while the power-hungry
vultures of corruption
dine on the blood of
the less fortunate
at their
high-priced
table of greed.
America's for-profit
social experiment to
make her great again
left only flesh and bone
rotting
in her streets
before
the final curtain
ushered in an
unforeseen reality
that the real problem
was never
fake news....
just a real problem with the truth.
The hollow
cannot
think for themselves,
so they
traffic in lies
and survive on fables;
and vultures cannot bow,
so they
stick their necks
out from behind the curtain
and blamelessly
wipe blood from their beaks;
didn't they know the
inescapableness
of
their
alternative moral code?
The demons of injustice
(masquerading as patriots)
all gathered around the punch bowl....
ignoring the
handwriting on the wall;
and the future
was
preordained
from the start....
now destiny's house lights are fading to black.
