The Lobotomizer

The Lobotomizer honed his dark art
with an apathetic heart and patience.

First, he earned a fancy Masters degree,
a quite secretive, hush-hush diploma
in psychological advertising.
Then, covertly sponsored by Henry Ford,
the Lobotomizer flew overseas
where he became good friends with the Nazis.
Mengele offered a substantial wing --
when it came to experimentation,
the Angel of Death was the reigning king.

After the Allied Forces came on strong,
the Lobotomizer slipped further East
to become a student of the Red Beast.
The iron-curtained, cold-war, Frankenstein,
taught the Lobotomizer many tricks,
including high-frequency hypnotics,
how to travel through electrical lines,
and even surf the beams of satellites.

Yet his travels were not nearly complete,
since the Lobotomizer knows no bounds
with his insatiable appetite.
He crossed the borders of every nation,
gaining more insightful experience.
He passed through many laboratories,
leaving behind countless horror stories;
leaving behind legions of empty minds.

Finally, in the fall of Sixty-Nine,
the Lobotomizer returned back home
to his motherland of the brave and free,
to commence his lobotomizing spree.
By the hundreds, thousands, millions and more,
the Lobotomizer plied his ill trade,
beaming himself via optic fiber,
satellite dish, cable, and antenna,
right between the eyes of his audience,
until the nation's vast majority
was left drooling, dull-eyed, slack-jawed and blank.

Nowadays, nearly the entire globe
can feel his dark probe in the frontal lobe.
The blue light flickers off walls, day and night,
as most people have given up the fight,
allowing their minds to be bought.
The Lobotomizer is not finished,
for he continues to push his prison
towards the remaining wisps of free thought.

    And Chris, I did not even get into how utterly DOPE this poem is. I KNOW the LOBOTOMIZER. He Hosts the Psy-Opera Theatre panicking the airwaves of false memory. Orson Wells warned of his mind control. Emotional hot buttons are pushed by his allied forces. He has helped write many of the PSY-Op tragedies of today. WOW, WHAT A BRAVE WRITE!!!! Sadly many won't fully grasp. SOOO glad you are back! seven and to my short list of faves.

    WHERE DO I START! Ok. Dr. Mengele, I can't believe you referenced Jew enemy #2 in this piece of MAGIC. I'm dyin' if I'm lyin', I mentioned your whereabouts not once but TWICE earlier tonite in two different comments, One was Russel Siveys new piece. the other's was P.Duggin. Check me, how big of a coincidence is this that you returnith on the same damn NIGHT! Bro, I was bummed when I came back and you were gone. I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than have a frontal lobotomy!
