Just Thought You Should Know, Expletive
how is it limiting oneself
by Gary Diamond
conforming to a cage
is the ultimate sin?
if we are beasts of burden
i'd rather trade this scrawny soul
than watch it write and writhe
pink and indecent
skinny by the firelight
these keys of merriment can't contain
retyping as the soul exudes discipline
we may become more than mammals
even if our evolution
is not physical
but of the mind
we're but jokes
and laughable frauds
casting to our own images prophetic gesture
seeing in through the window
of a fabricated life no man can live
without dying too young to taste the flavour
we're a failed experiment.
there are moments of triumph
nestled among the rape and the killings
listless and parched from want of trying
a pale shadow creeping blood-soaked walls
a pro-euthenasia stance
a fist in the face of dumb youth
from the angry pensioner.
age old truths are saddening.
they stick around like sore thumbs
laughing at the pity
that we have a million solutions
and we'll find a million more
before we adhere to the right ones
which were as the midget occam
in collaboration with kefrans dream
just thought you should know, fucker.
