Fire Sale

We set a vagrant on fire last night

He did not seem to mind

It being a chilled evening after all

Admittedly twas an impulsive thing to do
with consequence we should have foreseen
but nobody thinks ahead these days
where instant gratification is the rage
as we swept away his charred remains

Now our sins are all over the Evening News

Transgressions gone viral on YouTube
cause everyone with a phone
is a documentary director 

Social commentators now torch our asses
with their self righteous views
about the decline of Western civilization

Political pundits of course chime in
citing our deplorable actions
as proof positive
that our blatant insensitivity
is a metaphor that represents
the current administration

After this high rated media investigation
the cops felt compelled to lock us perps away

We did not mind all the notoriety
as we were now trending celebrities

Loss of freedom a fair price to pay
since we were not into liberty anyway

The Write Stuffing

I was there that fateful day
when Jesus rode in
on a gorgeous horse
and cast Satan away

OK maybe twas a close approximation
of a semi apocalyptic situation

I'm allowed my binges of exaggeration

It says so right here on my poetic license
I bought online for 99 cents
though it may be approaching literary expiration

The War Show

Dust off the off the old generals
Prop them up in front of the map
of our latest war event

We'll get back to porn stars
and pee tapes next week
but now we gotta hear experts speak
about our cool tech weaponry
and how we gotta make Syria
safe for democracy

Blessed Be Woman

That shiny cross
is a beacon to the lost

Dangling proudly erect
above your ample chest

Guiding wandering eyes
to the plunging neckline
and the canyon exposed
in a grand confluence monument
to the spiritual and animal
needs of man

Tis a Troubled Puzzlement

Too many loose pieces
clutter up the puzzle

Our former point of reference
now nothing but a faded picture

Masters of the Universe
have gone missing

Reliable sources insist
they never really existed

Which means there is no salvation

We are on our own for answers

(sweeps puzzle off table)

(assumes fetal position)

Guns and Sympathy

Let us bow our heads
over the mangled corpses
of the latest nightmare

Victims of our sins
who would not have died
if only we had done our duty
to protect humanity
instead of taking the blood money
which paid for today's
prayer of hypocrisy

Circle Jerk

The old man we use to torment
keeps dying in my memories

We pack of snotty brats
probably hastened his demise
with our relentless attacks

How I wish I could go back
to offer my apologies
for every single cruelty

Now I am the old man

Victimized by time
and howling young hyenas 
bludgeoning me with karma
