The Gates of Horn and Ivory

Two Gates the silent House of Sleep adorn; Of polish'd Iv'ry this, that of transparent Horn:
True Visions thro' transparent Horn arise; Thro' polish'd Iv'ry pass deluding Lies.

    Yes, another, an I am almost really very sure I did not post this here or at Gaia:


    The American Standard-88

    say hello to our American trash
    a generation kicked to the cracked curb
    kids in conformity mashed
    oozing threw the suburbs
    pied pipping to the clicking cloud of digital hash
    they are black labeled and down with the blues
    their soul’s chaffed by eternal diaper rash
    like cattle that where born to use
    under the table and whoring for cash
    pledging allegiance to a fable of abuse
    these domesticated dogs hen housing fleas

    red are the knees
    of a generation that is seized
    shackled and kneeling in the flood:
    a deluge of disease
    named ignorance

    blue is the color
    of the medicinal currency of grief
    buying depression
    for citizens begging relief
    for slaves seeking regression

    white is the collar
    worn by the guilded thieves
    lords scattering our future
    amidst the wind blown leaves
    of incorporated looters

    harken to me thine self poluters:

    -you star spangled
    crack and pill freaks

    -you bad angled
    Equity leaks.

    Better take two looks
    Because we’ve passed the peak
    Of crooks and hooks and line cooks
    beaten to senseless for a nook to seek
    you can't light a fire in a heart so cold

    appreciate
    the turn down
    don’t frown
    you pasty fat clowns
    squeeze two in the friendliest head
    in this town
    it’s a way to get ahead
    boom bleat boom bleat
    by this electric sheep anthem you are led

    text a prayer to the American trash
    the children of the dead
    polishing the knobs of the brass
    eating the fasy food slime that they’re fed
    under-educated about the ash
    Ttat’s infecting their heads
    the fallout from brash
    propaganda warheads
    spoon fed straight from the stash
    of cold war corn-fed
    bully boomers

    Wow, ok I really like this one. This is really well done. It is gritty all right, but I like that and this one is understandable in all aspects. Good going!

    Yes, I hang out with allot of people from all generations, albeit infrequently, and I am heart broken over the shape of my nephews generation.

    What generation is that? Do they even have a name? Is it the Miley Cyrus Gen?

    Good lord! Same with my husband's nephews and they are just a bit older than yours. They started out in juvie and went on to more crimes. I wish they would have turned out differently but their mom was a meth addict (my husband's sister) who died of idk what...cardiac arrest from respiratory failure. Very sad.

    it is very sad indeed....I believe it is part of the design of our society now a days.

    Wait, what? Part of the design of society? Do you mean that society demands we have these elements?

    I mean I think that all wings of all serious political movements have powerful members in their most extreme elements. I believe the darker corners of the progressive movement are engineering society in a dark way.

    What about the darker corners of the conservative movement? I would think they are engineering society in a dark way, no?

    Of course I do, but this poem wasn't about the Squidbillies. :0)
