The great grey state

I say, what’s with the learning
and the shovelling of mounds
and heaps of knowledge and
travelling and learning
and then sitting back
in the backyards of suburbia
raising children dreamily
as if in a trance.

Building community.
Building society.
A royal painful fuck in the ass
is what it is..

Go home to your countries,
your villages,
your places of coming into this world,
your barrios and your ghettos.
Build it there.

But I can’t say that
Beacuse I’m one of them
I’m you . I’m us.

We’ve all got mental syphilis
Fucking with our minds,
passing it along
Fucking with their minds
passing it along
Fucking with somebody else’s minds
passing it along

Warts and bruises
and itchiness in the head
Great grey scabs
of browning dirt
in the landscape of the mind.
