happy poem

you want a happy poem?
you want a beautiful soul?
you want some motivation?
you want a saying to hang on your wall?

all that tells me is that you choose to
ignore the reality of life:
the sadness;
the death;
the starvation;
the murder;
the abuse;
the degradation;
the enslavery of women.

look at those quotes on your walls
and remember this:
there are a billion people on this planet
that don’t have a wall.

wait a minute! i almost forgot to DVR
Game of Thrones. Nope, pardon me, i forgot
that i could watch it on HBO GO;
let me get back to deriding you.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
