THE WORLD HAS GONE RABID

The World Has Gone Rabid

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [The World Has Gone Rabid]

The words of the poet breathe
A hare roars
An ape dances in a palanquin
His advice was to look
On in silence but I cannot do so
I need to speak of how rabid
Our world has become!

Man is not man
We make Sasabonsam
Shudder at our exploits
Our hearts are hollow
Our minds; perverted
Our souls; sold to sadism

Disagree!
Be a Thomas!

Is our world not rabid
When in the name
Of some senseless gods
And over an inane debate
On which form of government is ideal
We slaughter our own?

Is our world not rabid
When vultures and worms
Feast on the remains of children
Who die of hunger
Whiles we throw trillions
Away into
Making
Minute
Machines
Meant
For
Mass
Murder?

Is our world not rabid
To persecute people
For how the Creator
Created them and
What they stand for
No matter how absurd?
(Dialogue exist for a reason)

Have we not gone rabid?
Do you still disagree?
Do you remain a Thomas?

My mind,
My heart,
And
My soul
Burns
To think of
Our end
If there is
No change
