Regular Shots of Liquid Valium

 

They say we’re only dancing

on this Earth for a short time,

my problem is, I don’t dance.

Dancing is for pussies….

 

So let me bait you instead

Islam is fundamentally flawed

as are all religions

You fucking German war pigs….

 

Jesus, Muhammad, all charlatans

Buddha,

cool dude….

 

But with Buddha no “out there” God

directing traffic down here

that can be called on to control

things, actions, cure diseases

miraculously

Nobody to pray to at night pleading

“Dear God,” “Help, I need help,

again,” and then

always ending the prayer with “and

please make me a better writer

and guitar player and get recognized

and get the fame and the groupies

and may I grow old gracefully

get a grizzled old man good-looking

face

that can still attract young and older

women

and help me to curtail the panic

attack freak-outs

that send me to the emergency room

where I get a room and

regular shots of liquid Valium.”

No God out there to call for help on

that stuff

according to Buddhists,

it’s all inside

gotta discover or bring it out

and we are all alone

but a drop in the ocean

of All.

And….

Oh shit.

That scares me.

 

 

 

The Convenient Delusion

 

It’s out of habit

necessity

sculpts

a fool’s head.

 

Brackish

it’s Obama

stereophonic

play-space with

your woofers

and tweeters

pushers

and policers

incarcerating

mighty

empire dread.

Yeah it’s

a real palace

of wisdom

your drunken head

hand drawing

art? Inside

mine skull.

Just remember

in realities

less real

and profound

one may not

equate mountain lion = cougar

or eventually discover

after thirty eight or forty

years of hard study

life and reading

’tis a strange sensation

when you

discover

there is

no “d”

in privilege.
