A poem for the movie They Live,
(and people with mildly dark senses of humour)
If you’re duplicitous and you know it, make it show.
(whips a hundred treasures out a window)
If you believe in God cover your ears.
(burns every bible ever written while
dancing hysterically and naked and mad)
This is the evolution of style into bleak satire.
(empties deadly virus into water supply)
This is Sparta. (Kicks man into well)
This is Hell. (“I am God here”)
Good morning dear! (gargles acid and spews it)
Hello Ms. Jonson lovely rose garden as always!
(stomps fellow shopper on Black Friday)
The movement will not be televised!
(entire generation misses point of The Matrix)
I love coming here to eat, so delicious!
(feeds tapeworm in jar under table)
Oh Tommy I’m so glad you found a nice girl!
(spraypaints doll hooker green for irony)
Can’t wait to stretch out and chill after a long day!
(digs own grave with breaking finger nails and all, buries self.)
Poem ends with rash series of empty threats.
(Ginger. Is. Coming.)
