I Witness

eyewitness

I witness

have become an eye-witness

to your atrocity

or do you see it as generosity?

fastidious interventions

causing causation

burn the incense in

your chambers of innocence

we clamor for notoriety

under tables and in backrooms

torturing our propriety

did we ever own any of our reality?

I witness

have become defenseless

left alone with our decisions

unbound and tied down

cotton candy inquisitions

color me black and blue

I will not forgive you

or your indiscretions

we are aiming for you

running for office

we swallow the implications

cutting away the cancers of

your manipulations

I see you, i.c.u.

sycophant money-maker

obsequious servile wretch

insect eyes with reptilian mind

you of uncommon birth

misshapen perfection silver spooned

with the air of failure

and a scent of red jasper

mood stone stoned in hate

greed and lust

arbiter of rust

assassin of trust

I witness

I tasteless, more or less

I will never own any of it

the eaters are there always

EATING

and leave little for those under

sable black hatred

burns through the minds

of the diminished

eye-witness accounting

a premonition of

Jet jaded onyx

correspondence

a meeting of squalor

ominous intentions

blue diamond forevers

coalesce into our Nevers

we oppose your capital wasting

a crusade of numbers

choking off the chattel

harden wood into stone

sharpening spear with  bone

a torrid dispersal of all they need

For our tornado of challenge

will toss rag doll splinters

into the sunset

I witness

the first resistance,

l’état, c’est moi

  1. i love your work so much oldepunk. rarely do i read things that evoke such emotion and depth of thought. i can’t read your words without getting introspective in a manner that i usually try to hide from. that is truly a feat in and of itself.

  3. Your way of language in writing is breath-taking and awe.
    Having said that – the revolution is coming and your political stance of what is currently taking shape, us humans aren’t worth but there is hope within us to fight back against our establishment.

    Excellent writing my friend. 🙂
