next universe

 
young men with angel faces
open your eyes
we have company
and they are united
in their neck-slashed ignorance
 
they are massing together
with gaping mouths
getting fat on vanity
and illusions of permanence
wailing about unspeakable lies
screaming:
 
sky's are for aeroplanes
mountains are for homes
beaches are for tourists
weapons are for peace
war is for profit
science is for immortality
metal is for skin
 
and they want you
to swallow this before dinner
and sleep like a baby
because comfort makes you weak
so don't close your eyes
stare right through
their putrid decency
& tell them
 
truth is my language
beauty is my clothes
bullshit doesn't grow on trees
so go fuck yourself
next universe... please!
