A Chorus of Inherent Blues

surviving in uncaring times
a silhouette of history’s past,
dark shadows race onward
eerily against inner peace,
bearing witness to belief’s
emergent untimely demise,
fairness is a foolish dream
enlightened twilight sleep,

lost in an innocent trance
awash in narcissism’s pool,
deaf blind prognosticator’s
on street corners cry out,
‘God is NOT a Christian’
in a post apocalyptic age,
a ageist man-made world
wherein automatons reign,

heroic altruistic capitalists
atop rafts of ill-gotten gain,
a parasitical elite straining
vast hidden corporate riches,
on the backs of dependent
sacrificeable indigent souls,
dire posthypnotic automata
ever living a forgotten life,

a wilderness of sojourners
numbed minds and spirits,
a chorus of inherent blues
non-persons who never was,
adrift in a comatose state
by prosperity’s siren call
