Distorted America Poem

President’s American liberty
(Overconsumption, avarice, gluttony)
Dresses in the “drag of security”
(This way there is no long term certainty!)

Xenophobia separates people
Making us fearful & much more tractable
Freedom, when wealthier, was our steeple
(Nouveau-wealth tell us lies un-factual!)

It is clear: to live in utopia
You must strive to see the other man’s side
It’s not as far as Casiopia
(Attempt to understand his crazy lies!)

Behind beheadings & predator drones
The wanton ideological killings
Are simple desires everyone owns
(Someone’s getting rich off of these ratings!)

To lubricate the larder for the rich
We fear other types of society
Buy military hardware like a bitch
(To maintain some bourgeois propriety!)

Nirvana Lost

Nirvana: destroyed/
In a flood possessions/
Purchased to please me/
#haiku

My limitations/
Provide boundaries I need/
To make me better/
#haiku

Ev’rything I want/
Pale reflection of ego/
And paltry desires/
#haiku

Happiness requires/
Limitations’ Acceptance/
And self-denial/
#haiku
