HARD TIMES

hard times.
bad times.
time revolving
around 
mountains
of unfinished business

there comes a day
of days
where all the days
attack
finish up
all old business

time, upset with itself
lashing out
at establishment
establishing new rules
ruling party
be damned

damnation
celebrating weakness
leaking out and over
speaking against
whatever remains of humanity

scattered there
there
desperately clinging
dissolution ringing last call




they say 
its not the size
as i stumble
forward
and backup
stumbling again
forward
and wonder
what size?

and is there
by chance
a compromise?

and is it right
side stepping
falling
on one's sword

because of size?



so many of us
born
no direction in mind
no longer possible
to tell the 
difference
between love
and dead songs

just yesterday
heard a man sing
a song
as if he were a living
breathing 
man with a plan

trying to explain
but just kept right on
singing

deciding
it wasn't a bad song
just leave him
sing his sad
but inappropriate
song

done singing
then to realize
it was Tuesday
and we completely
misplaced
Monday

still lost
in his most inappropriate
sad song



reason betrayed us
left us adrift
betrayed our values
and yet
we suffer more
for we have
surrendered
and we have
accepted this as fact
without a whimper
we surrendered
trampled 
our souls to dust
fools us
yes, fools us
