GROTESQUE (I)

No longer young.
But not getting it right.
Negativity is right
But positivity is very wrong.
Death makes us feel alive,
Life makes us feel dead
Air makes us drown,
Water makes us fly.

Unemployment employs us,
Famine feeds us.
Caskets transports us,
Insecurity secures us.
Nudity clothes us.
Clothes make us nude.
Cold warms us.
Heat freezes us.
We believe there’s gold
Only because we were told.
Speeches, a different thing,
Actions, another thing.
Let’s critique our leaders,
Who deal with our futures.
To the antics of our killers,
Let’s find soothing sutures.
