Shadow Thoughts And Broken Hearts

Stupidity disgusts me,
              and so do you.
Growling like a lion.
As if somehow I should
               be impressed
with your tangible lying and
                 your suits and ties.
Self deluded morons
                   who think that
                       the decisions they make
                            are sterile and important.
Be still my heart!
           The Call Centre explodes with
                                  angry customers.
Coerced into complacency with visions
                       of sugar plum fairies
                            stuck up their bums.
The world explodes around them.
There is dying right on the streets
                             of the suburbs
                                   they are imprisoned in.
A plastic bowl and a baseball cap.
                               Football and beer,
                               ice cream and phoney.
I'm not dying inside. I've never been alive
                                        to begin with.
Save for one brief period when I was a boy,
                     Before they manipulated imagination
                                                away from me.
When I believed in aliens and other words,
                       spoke with joy of kingdoms pretended
                             and animals always speaking.
Correctness corrupts. The middle ground swallows
                                 intelligence and spits it out
                                 like jizz from a penis.
I'm swallowed whole.
                        Compressed and stagnant.
                        Stagnant and compressed.
Angry lips blistered by bitching members
                                   of the lower classes.
Soup Kitchens and Food Banks.
Food Banks and Soup Kitchens.
Rushing feet walking by the poverty stricken.
                      No time, no time, no time to
                                       connect with humanity.
Jesus on their necks.
Christ on their lips.
Hearts that are foreign to Him.

Swirling, swirling and becoming consumptive.
              Living from cheque to cheque.
              Televisions that are never turned off.
              Not living, but watching other people
                             pretend that they are living.
Ignoble diseases celebrated by celebrities.
Causes and motions of Parliament.
                     Words repeated over and over.
Hurting. Always hurting. Broken hearts and shadow thoughts.
                                    Shadow thoughts and broken hearts.
