A smash mouthed essay on my view of what we have become.




Observe these times of defiled eloquence

Massive shift to secular senility

Pharmaceutical bribery


Controlled euphoria

Eases the sting of enslavement

Treasury stoked treadmill

John Q. Citizen

Reinforced by 12 pack nights

To soothe the pain of indentured servitude

He slowly crumbles

Beneath the impervious liability

Land baron vultures

Circle his home in greedy anticipation

Insolvent auction

Fruit of his back breaking labor

Sophia Soccer Mom

Her insanely busy schedule

Coping mechanism

She seeks solace in her leased SUV

And her friendly ghetto merchants she frequently visits

Chemical escape

Legal and illegal

As her picket fence lay trampled

Patriot Act Privilege

Pseudonym for totalitarianism

Pure and simple

Blind mice scamper for shelter

Oblivious to the advancing tyranny

Depression driven survival

Our children

Forced into public brainwash compression chambers

Exposed to filthy fabricated curriculum

God is not invited

Our system has determined

We no longer need His guidance and wisdom

Technology triumphs momentarily

Teenage text message ventilation

Raging frustration

Builds to bulbous crescendo


Inevitable eruption approaching

Irreversible climax

Take a sobering look at America today

Time to wake up my friends

We are hated by the world

Despised for our military aggression

World dominant foreign policy agenda

Compared to Nazi Germany

This is not the same great country I grew up in

With filtered pride and reverence

Imitation leadership


In support of the hidden masterminds

Programmed partisans




Sad prophecy has arrived

Tithing to support Gods work in the community

Corporate giant “churches”

Misleading dog and pony shows

Tax exempt

State subsidized

Now issue complex financial statements exposing millions

Land ownership

That rivals small third world countries

Yet they plead to the congregation

For increased sacrifice to ease their deficits

Reminds me of taxation

With greedy representation

The President of the United States of America


A noble sleight of hand spokesman

In honorable tradition

Reduced to a boob puppet


By secret powerful hands

With global hidden agendas


Conservatives Neocons

Slush funds

Stock well funded war chests

Slick new salesmen

Groomed by the elite

Line up for the next national con job

Weep not His Holy seed

This too must come to pass

Stand firm on solid rock

Light of inner brilliance

Eternal flame of Jesus Christ

Shall overcome and reign triumphantly

This day

Our duty is to carry on

Feed those who are hungry

Share our faith with dismayed mortals

Offer solace and true compassion to anguished souls

Our Messiah has taught us by His actions

To keep sanctified grace

It must be shared freely

With all who suffer

As the axis slowly tilts

The time to spread the truth rapidly expires

Bill, you have said an awful lot here, and a lot that needed to be said. There is some startling imagery here (As her picket fence lay trampled)as well as some sobering truths. Thanks for speaking your mind. So few do.
Reviewed by Pier Tyler 2/23/2007
We've grown numb... This is a heavy but necessary write.
Reviewed by Malcolm Watts (Reader) 2/10/2007
Your analysis is accurate in many ways however, the problem is not secular beliefs per se. Mankind must evolve from our childhood of needing Gods we expect to fix things to a sharing culture where we collectively care and help one another. Thanks for sharing.
