Lies and Slander, A poem

“The poor deserve it!”

Lies and slander.

“The left hates…”

Lies and slander.

“The police protect and serve.”

Lies and slander.

“Your standard of living will only go up.”

More lies, more slander.

“Love is all you need.”

More lies, more slander.

“This is land of the free.”

The biggest lie, the biggest slander.

The Story’s Answer. Part 2

There is no day,
There is no hour,
There is no time
which cannot be used
for the sake that
our sweet and public did.
To do right is to act,
To justify is inexcusable.
Truth is the only merit to truth
As it should be,

I have kept silence
in my place that
was no silence at all,
yet it bore no
production.
No sense is wasting
timeless effort.

Bah! Curse this
disposition!
All this trivial
nonsense of
waste and time.

Time IS Waste
and so is anger.
Yes, there is a time
for anger,
there is a time for
justice,
Yet who am I,
but one soul
and one mind
to determine semantics
of such a word.

What mortal is?
What mortal dares?
Is time, is space,
is life itself not
the determinate of a concept so alien
as quote-unquote
justice.

So now we must ask
the question, the
discomforting untrue
question,
what is justice?
and is justice relative.

A call to arms this is
to some,
A blind rally of people
shouting “NO!” time
and time again.

Yet why not?
Is truth not relative?
Is time not relative?
Is evil not relative?
If so why or how
can any system be
true to the word
and concept of
justice?

If not then tell
me,
What is justice?
What is just?
Is it Just that a
stack of paper
determines the worth
of a human life?
Is it Just that a girl
is judged and damned
if she Do or Don’t?
Bare the child,
You’re a whore.
Give up the child,
you’re a murderer.
You dare call this Just?
Billions to distract
torture and incest
and you dare call
this sport.

I abide to love,
peace and truth and
you dare call me
“blasphemous.”
And there behold,
another bind.

Truth, ha, even the word
is laughable and
the question real,
What is Truth?

Is Truth real or another
semantic error?
Ah, and loyalty,
another semantic
matter,
and to dare share
the semantic,
the blind know
nothing semantic.

Trivial, waste in time,
blind and yet blind
again.
To make no effort,
to only bring forth
a craft of humanity
and thought,
indulgent no?

NO!
I say not, I
say what is not
a product of self,
what is not a product
of the decision to act?
Yet what decision is not
made by knowledge of
the option.
Who is to give that knowledge
and who is in a place
of such ego that
they can say
it is a thing to give.

Bare fortune,
No, and true
Sad heart break
it cannot be true
again,
but it is,
It is,
It is true again,
Oh curse the vile
nave and naive
you patriots and do-gooders
lay.
Curse you and your
improper dispositions.
Your cruel word,
yet be gone
for to be lost in lust,
to be a drift in the sexual draft
and current
is true.
My supposed perversion,
is my natural gain,
The only perversion,
is fear,
Fear!
Any! Fear!
Your Fear!
It is Fear that perverts.
It is Fear that obscures.
Yet in a way Fear
can lead to security.
Well secure no more,
for security is the chain,
The chain’s,
our chains,
we are the workers
of the world,
we must unite,
we must show
pride
we must show
lust
we must show our
power
and we must show
our modesty.
Blurred is my rapid
thought
but strong is every
effort,
every bank on word
is both play and
employment.

but it is also
protest,
a viable way to live
and love
and fight,
we must draw upon
our unity to fight.
Strong words,
from not a strong man,
because no man is present,
no woman either,
only people,
yes only people are here,
Any other label is upon
you and your nature
and peaceful self.

Work and slave
drone on and on,
to what end?
To justify your insecurities,
to pain yourself with your own
cyclone of a lost
anachronism’s
label!

What label does one need
beyond knowledge?
Both of body and mind,
Be kind thoughts,
Why does balance
become an alien concept?
To hell with the coin flip,
throw away your coin
for it was used to buy
your chains.
I have no shame for
my craft.
For it is my work.

Do you question your blacksmiths?
Do you have fault
with your carpenters?
Yet you attack the work of poets and philosophers?
Because their work is
work of thought.
I am a citizen of
this world,
and of no other place.
I will not have my
acts obscured,
what is our self indulgence?
For are we not robbed?
How do we not fight?

All do yet they
have their fights by
symbols,
by a general lack of security.

To excuse these acts,
to hide behind the
proud progressive,
then use and obscure
the name.
The art of war is not the war to be flaunted.
but it is the only thing
to be chained.
Yet even good chains
break so often,
yet better than no chain
at all,
but chain no person
but the wicked,
and even when the
wicked are chained
only chain them.
No whips,
no death,
only chains,
For one chain alone
is a lost ironic,
lacking humanity.

The Greatest Cruelties

The Greatest Cruelties lie

in cordial anonymity.

Cruel cordial anonymous

signatures.

Shock and awe, terror

and pain be felt shocked

and scared.

Scared of only the unknown

when it is a joy.

It is a real joy,

yes this joy is

not some illusion, it is

real,  real because I

have felt it,

in thought

and body.

I felt what has long been eluded.

True so it be called.

Joy.

The Great Gamble

Formative in scarcity

and birth on lies and torture.

A stolen power

and a given life

and a lost future,

will the next generation

succeed?

Is it all and always

been the great

gamble.

Yes, it is true all

our efforts in our

ends of youth

are but a sorrowed

addicting

gamble.

It Is Return!

It is Return!

It is Resolve!

It is the permanent

restoration of what

was otherwise

overkill

and retrospect.

Why is it that

only such a tragedy

can light a fuse

and create such

a spark that

any poet may

write by it, 

any artist may

paint by it.

Identity is not

convoluted.

Self interest is not

inherently selfish.

These are the obvious,

yet we are quick

to ignore the obvious

for what’s sake?

Some false notion,

some filtered and

false sense of

self?

Yes.

It is false,

Dare say

what is true

I dare disprove

Nietzsche and

all that sets

the flow of

our existential

hell.

Post modern is

irony in itself.

We are beyond

modernity.

We are a collective,

We are of a mind

of minds.

There is little to

withhold,

there is no reason

to blame the victim,

and that is a truth.

Plans must be

made but fluid

enough to change.

That is a truth,

all that which is

forsaken as trite

obvious or

cliche is

a truth.

Said many times

in many pages,

the ultimate human

truth, is love

and no broken

heart,

no former projection,

no wanton scale

no obtuse measure,

can break what

which never exists.

Because there

is no such thing

as weakness.

This word, Love.

Image

My heart is open to all.

My soul is an open book,

for love is a universal character

even the poorest and

the meanest

and the most sad

and the most spiteful

and the most lonely

have loved, or still love,

or forever love.

Where is your love?

Have you none?

Then you have some

of mine.

Love can only be returned

by sharing such love

and losing such love.

Yes, such a word is a trifle

to a modern warped scholar,

but to the artist and the

romantic

it is a constant.  It is all.

It holds to truth

guides to truth

Is truth.

That is love,

That is the love that is

and shall forever be my

love.
