Disgusting people

have disgusting gods


The right living hustle

asks we hold scenes


of terror, as just that

localized, discreet, framed


unique but separate

Your allergies and opinions


are not something we can

afford. Enhanced Interrogation


is a simply vile

inhuman, code for torture


Calling things by their name

Murder is murder


Pain is pain

and the fantasy


of Civilization is true

only as long as you are.

Keenly in tune with the events of the day, Dr. Con. I'm not, per se, a cynic, but what made me a little more cynical was when a friend opened my eyes to a not so apparent truth: politics is the end result of the ideas in a culture, not the other way around. From politicians don't come ideas; they are the ideas. That was a real eye-opener. icon_neutral.gif


I like the poem's compact, sparse form. The title is original and complements the poem perfectly.

I fear I repeat myself DR C., but your opening lines know how to hook a reader.


The Orwellian world marches on...
