again-winds of war

vitriol-war is our way 

fingers point-blind stares

forces gather- lines to cross

innocent blood-soon will spill

2013

 

hired dogs of war

political talking heads  

with hardened fingers

pointing across seas

to far-off lands

picking riddled sides

haunting precarious futures

sending tomorrow’s children

while fevered rumors

and blistering chants

languages of war

ratcheting up again

settling  widening differences

with more death, malice, and destruction

trading rocks and stones

of centuries past

for all of the

missiles and bullets

of a warped modern day

 

so soon

 

blood

 

spilled

 

again

 

again

 

again

mumbles chants murmurings

wringing  hands

furrowed brows

small dirty word

war

murmurs dark rumblings

genocidal maniacs

war mongers dark glee

Distant Words of War

Annihilation Promised

Bluster Inflates Self

Effluvium(Only the Mad Dance On….)

 

 

Trancelike,

the shadows danced slowly  

in wild drunken circles

as  leagues of dented saints

petition in pained voices  

in pained contrapuntal descant 

martyred hearts petitioned

to heedless deities

of places both far and imagined

lynxed couriers

only in waiting

of delivering

coded messages

ever enigmatic and blurred

anathemic languages of war  

while phalanxed regiments  

hidden in faint gloamings

stalemated in waitings

the sides frozen

in perpetuity

as centuries accumulate

The Pacifist’s Dreams and Visions(Ennui)

The Pacifist’s Dreams and Visions(Ennui)

Death’s Spectre, I’ll Follow Not,

Thy Foul Shadow’s Jagged Course

–Through  Mazed  Theatres,

Wars of Past and of the Stark Future.

The Fevered Jingoism Never has Never had an Allure

Outright Rejected, a Corruptive Influence,

So Many a Warped Vision

May Fouling Stench of Rotting Flesh of the Fallen,

Besmirch Those Battlers Partaking of  the Putrefactive Nectar

….Solitary Ambivalence,

A Nullifying Counterpoint to Your Angried Call To Arms

Let The Rhetoric Build,  Deaf Ears Turned in Defference

I’ll Know No War
