dis-integration sickness


Schooling Rites
 
 
Circle 'round the weak;
teach 'em as we were taught
to keep to the place we're given
(not by a just universe, ha ha)
by the right of what we hold
by will, skill, better weapons.
Didn't sign no social contract
of mutual respect.
The rights we expect are
to live as best we can until
we don't.
Teach the little ones as we
have grown to learn --
the wages to be earned are paid
in lies. The riddle we devise
to satisfy our rage is played upon
the prey we find
to circle 'round today.
 
 
 
 
Far beyond cruelty
into a whole other realm
of horror, dishonour and disdain
to observe crushing pain
and serve utility
by crushing more
 
 
 
Pilgrim’s progress
White Anglo Ethos
Petulant brats demand obeisance
to our code of conquest, of dominance,
of hard-assed outcast of deviance
Rule over Earth and her issue
break them to work for our wishes.
Honor, respect,these are authorities’ own
the war lords we place on our thrones to command.
Progress is forward motion on opening roads.
Marching, no conscience nor care for what may explode.
Let our Great Destroyer sort it.
 
 
 
Feudal Diffraction
 
 
Above, beyond color charts. Hierarchy decides.
Hoarders of permission slips for supplies
prioritize
which brick gets laid, or even fired;
who lives well, or excessively;
who scrapes a while until they no longer get by.
No errant genetic code that compels stupidity.
Mind shaping social propriety provokes insanity
-- a kind of manic compulsive,
depressive obsessive,
mass delusion,
St. Vitus line-dance to a zombie
caller's tune.
What to do?
Meme-web reconstruction in increments
Paradigm warping incidents
Realign the pulse of macro/microsphere
Benign gibberish cy-phones through?
Take back time.
Take back your right to self-valuation.
Take back your place
outside of the lines.
Our comfort requirements, self-fulfilling desires,
greater outpouring toward glory and grace
may grow from strong base
of solid infrastructure,
fruitful interplay,
free and expansive expression.
Let us take hands,
share eyes, ideas, create beatific space,
multi-rhythmed
direction.
Let us be and do and feel
that which bequeaths permission
to be whole.
 
 
 
Where is the pride in being “white”?
So nondescript.
So amorphous.
Flavorless.
No unambiguous history.
Lack of color is not a culture. White does no great deeds for the honor of
such a diverse, farflung, unconnected category.
White pride, because you have no noble tribe to celebrate.
 
 
 
Haters to the left of me
Haters to the right of me
Politics has become a hater's game
Weaponizing shame and blame
Keeping us all enslaved to
emotional memes
Everyone feels afraid
Nobody gets what we need
for healthful well-being
 
What if we all could make the change
Move out of hate, into sanity?
Sane to the left of me
Sane to the right of me
All able to acquire our fair share
of fulfilling desires, in peace
Free to each have our say
 
 
 
 
the police problem is not bad apples
it is bad pickers and bad apple growers,
and a bad apple market
which encourages the production and distribution
of clearly poisonous fruit
 
 
 
Logic of Evolution
 
 
Successful progenitors
survive to sow seed
by force or persuasion
or hiding off screen
or banding together
that more may succeed,
and upgrade conditions,
enhance the breed.
But, for such teams to work well
we must
learn to respect, honor, and trust;
expect to contribute, receive and share,
accept the caring for and care.
In community varied seeds are sown.
Thus is a thriving future grown.
Or, sibling rankling infests, turns
on neighbors as scorn.
Barriers proliferate,
preparations for war.
Who is emboldened by
destruction and blood,
blasting civilizations
back into mud?
Are these principled people
filled with kindness and joy?
Those who can create, build;
the lacking destroy.
Guns, bombs, cruel words,
contempt, angry sneers,
promotion of pain,
preying on fears,
paying us naught but
unneeded tears
and advancement of certain
unsavory careers.
We can reject violent lies,
realize the prize.
Here! before our eyes.
Simple. Easy. Free.
Expect, accept, embrace
the abundance
of Peace.
 
 
 
Why do we want to hate?
Why believe safety demands
subjugation?
Why assume differences mean
danger we must suppress?
Why not look for the beauty,
curiosity, opportunity for
gentleness, shared humor,
compassion, what we want to be
humanity?
Why not feel a part of a grander plan,
a happier future?
Why can't we understand, justice
belies hate -- requires love?
 
 
 
I am not blind to color.
I have never seen a black human,
nor a white.
People appear in various shades of
browns and reds.
Why do we not thus perceive --
Earth's fertile richness in our skins: browns and reds?
How did we come to need to pretend cold
simplicity of colorless You and Me?
Black + White -- not natural life but
pre-judged categories, static and deadening.
 
 
 
all the tragic, miserable suffering based on misunderstandings,
or on situations which further down the timeline no longer exist.
Diseases for which cures have been found, injuries in wars that
never needed to be fought, mistaken enmity
 
 
 
The issue of the war of man against man
Negativity dwells on our differences of skin, religion,
nationality, sexuality, any little difference we can define
rather than expend our time and energies on developing
benefic policies based on our commonalities
Common human needs, people above things,
a planet we can thrive on – air we can freely breathe,
water without poison, food that nourishes, schools that
instill skills that give us confidence to make our way,
tools that enrich our minds to grow and learn
from each encountered idea
Better to cower and hate in fear?
Or deal in peace?
 
 
 
Let the profiteers leave, and give us back our
common Earth.
Evil people doing evil for evil reasons,
making excuses for acts that can't be
excused by citing evil myths.
Let them enjoy the angry rip of tribal sheathes,
repurposed scythes rising, colonial histories.
Let them eat the falsely filling cake of lies, forced miseries
that defile practical fulfillment, and
breathe the poisons they agree fit for our
common atmosphere, elsewhere.
Let us help them out the door, as we make
for ourselves a world worthy of all
who value terrestrial vitality.
 
we are not our ancestors
we are not religions
we are not lines on a map demarcated by war
we are earth made vital
we are seeking minds inviting partners
we are seed and core as skin sheds and grows anew
we are me and you and all we become, alone and together
we are as we agree, composed of dissonance and harmony
Thriving lives matter
Peace matters
Living Earth most greatly matters.
 
 
 
You have no idea the terror I endure.
As I have none of yours.
If perchance we share but an inkling
of heart wrenching gut sinking
why hurt apart in enmity
instead of encouraging empathy?
Wander my vast landscape.
I inhale exotic air on your
revealed shores.
With each mingled breath we murmur:
"Tell me more"
 
Negate the passion of hate
with the passions we share.

to keep to the place we're given
(not by a just universe, ha ha)

Didn't sign no social contract

The rights we expect are

the wages to be earned are paid
