Circus

 

I leave for work in the morning

the news is horrible

I head for home in the evening

the news is as horrid

 

DESTRUCTION!

 

Abortion
Amber Alerts
Bigotry
Bullying
Child Sacrifice
Euthanasia
Hate
Ignorance
Insult
Kidnapping
Murder
Nine-One-One Complaints
Rape
Rebellion
Robbery
Sexual Perversion
Selfishness
Terrorism
Violence
War
Xenophobia

 

HOPELESSNESS!

 

such horrors as Sodom never knew

and if that werent bad enough

at my evenings rest, warm

in the comfort of my very own home

(or padded movie theatre seat)

any entertainment I could need

any information I would want

stands ready to at a buttons push

flow unstopped into my sanctuary

charge from my un-darkened screen

into a darkness much deeper

all that is wrong with this world

splashing through this eager fountain

on to my no longer innocent eyes

unapologetic

unfiltered

unrelenting

remorseless death destroying life

 

Rome had nothing on us
