Careless are the messiah’s
in the time of indigent majesty,
falsetto prophets bestow
Bleary days of scornful activity
regurgitate sophomoric platitudes
for egos that masturbate
to illusions of righteousness
Unrelenting joy grinds flaccidly,
voices roar in prolonged silence
their words scourging ears
stuffed with regurgitated platitudes.
Pass through the ivory night,
Seek respite in flutes of sand,
dine on bone and ash as
starvation stirs your desire for more.
Indulgence flays nutrional need
corpulence outweighs charity
Gold means little
while starvation exists.
