A Pleading for Sanity

in love with pain...

grief...

loss...

we sit down watching flashings of the lost...

watching death in comfortable couches...

laughing at argument amongst lost friends...

seeing and relishing the almost real...

morbid curiosity...

relishing fear...

watching the "bad guy" get their due...

imagining that such people exist without cause...

cheering then when the talking heads say...

"another bad guy or gall bit the dust today"...


We tell ourselves we're not involved...

Budweiser and Degree antiperspirants beg to differ...

our thirst for the world has no bounds...

big money for them that sell...


When did we become spectators in hell...

hoping our "hero" or "villains" meet a sticky end...

ever wonder why there are no happy shows...

no stories about love alone...

where we enjoy nuclear bliss...

Bewitched and Beaver met their end...

Cosby is no more...


You wonder why people die in the streets...

why we are in war constantly...

why suffering is constantly before our eyes...

we asked for it on our TV...

we ordered it from those who give...

delivered to us constantly...

have you had your fill?
