Why are the fingerprints

Of morose

All over the self-imploding


From Europe to the

Middle East, to the Americas,

 Is that jingling sound

The coins of the dead

Rattling in the pockets

Of morose.

In My Freedom

I own a sailboat

But I don’t get to the sea

I run a small business

So I can be free,

And in my freedom

I find my feet

Nailed to the floor

But in my mind,

I’m alive and I soar.

So some of us made it,

The mega quake, other

Craziness and questions

Still looming,

Do hacking and

Weapons of mass destruction

Have anything in common,

Is the Gulf of Tonkin

Eerily echoing,

To all the tree huggers

And the buggers who have

Fed you the mantras

Sustainable and the

Benefits of a chip,

What in the hell

Do you mean

By sustainable
