Flesh and blood binds us all. (Lounsbury)

It seems broken tracks are a gift

somewhere in between technology,

bereft of innocent discovery;  

the gun lasered the first western dream.

When those golden arches of McDonald sat,

we grew fat on innocuous foods

made of internet bubblegum rooms;

and the slow chewing of gourmet meals

was replaced. Now we showcase rings

with those matchmaker ads,

as fads waste realities taste. 


We ate dishes from the banquets of Homer

But Homer’s great banquet was on earthen floors,

served up by earthly storms under celestial lights

flashing as comets told of the rise and

fall of empires.

Now gaggles of geese fly overhead

as harbingers of winter’s past

are ignored by modern waste.

Streams clog our oily mistakes,

Replacing it with another case

of alchemy’s golden Hyssops.   


Once our own empire saw picket fences,

On a shire along a great road;

and our delight was spending credit

due long before.

For hero’s walk unnoticed,

desiring only to find that peace

broken by counting numbers

Of  computer farms. They grew

fiefdoms that lost sight of time,

in search of that new adventure;

 In an undiscovered country that

revives the notion of liberty.


Freeing us from kings,

To a people lead by a great God;

Ignored by the honey tree’s flow,

But the golden calf no longer gives her

milk for free.

We should listen to our Hindu brothers,

Let the cows roam freely in our country.

Let the beggar with the rich man and the dog, 

eat from the same bowl.

For peace contemplate life, and

pursuits of happiness;

and our windowpane cries in nostalgic bliss.

We reminisce of that perspiring kiss,

Hot petals seeking domain;

But sex binds us all.

You should be comforted by knowing that our hot-dogs are made from pigs that used gloss lipstick!
