Gore Up the Mountain

every morning the people woke

not to work but to media repeating

the guilt made motive preyed upon born freedom

the belief for which we must fight

the lie of good exercised as virtue in social servitude

another form of self-flagellation

distrust in motives divided those private demons

vented through palms to public forms

our digital mediums morphing

our bodies into detonation devices

mostly which with two legs and two arms

contains a heart and a breath

the fix made by belief in the problem

a policy of addiction formed

support groups and steps for the self made weak to follow

for we are to rely upon each other

to build a more ideal world

and the people fought and bickered

wasting away all their days

because they believed the capital was to heavy

and values ought be free

the hippies tried escape

and no one made it out sane or unaltered

the eloquence of the universe

believed by some buyable by pill

the beggars and thieves sit mighty

amongst the virtue signals of so called advanced societies

the desires burning the men alive

and their bodies became ashes propelled by design

the motor of desire to rid the feeling of the lack

chasing them up their backs

warm bodies made cold

by the isolation of those

who will ask and ask and ask

always wanting of us more

those who live in peace

resigned to stand firm with the value of life

not flinch at those who cry for more

who beg for more

who will do whatever they can reason

to shake a little bit more out

of them for me

Each day I work to stand a bit more

free from any kind of belief

and exercise fewer postures

unwaveringly designed to signal

the lie that I could know a better way

a better way for what and for whom

what care have I what you put in your guts

or thoughts in your mind

its your life to do with what you so choose

and so let those who go on claiming virtue sing their sirens

and I’ll keep on driving my feet into the soil

each step at a time
