The Modern Sideshow


Poesy plus Polemics

mindless captives
cringe helplessly
caught up in tasteless
trite freakishness
bleak sordid precincts
that no self-respecting
observer would visit
yet nonetheless crowded
with wide-eyes and slack-jaws
transfixed and afflicted
dipped in disease that
no popcorn or lemonade
ever could medicate
turning the TV screen
in on itself where gray
worms of inanity
slither toward ears
that give access to
dormant unseasoned
delectable brains
with a craving for
artless crude slices
of sad pointless lives
called reality even though
all that is real is their
sickening stench of a
decomposed culture
