To know that you know nothing is to choose to be everything you wanna be. A ripple of faith in the murky waters of love can set a tsunami of compassion flooding down upon the gaping holes of desperation that we as a people have sunken into. Now I ain’t talking about, the faith faith in the word god or the thought of Jesus christ allah buddha the savior the sanctifier the holy roller, the worlds best bowler. No, I’m talking about a little bit of faith faith in the power of pure poetry. Yes folks, pure poetry simple and unclean. No hallmark card crap-o-la but the core essence of the rhythm and the rhyme our give and take pushing back and forth exploding moments in time. It’s through the power of pure poetry I tell you that we can overcome the humdrum the half assed the highbrow the sullen and studied cramped up culture carnivores. I’m talking about the tongues tango with the dirty talk of the persuance of purity without sanctity, in the word in the utterance of speech fearless of the stutter as we flutter our poetical flag. A warning to the world to beware to beware of false poets who preech that they, know it. For I know that I know nothing therefore I can be everything I choose to be. So saith the poet So dig it, my flock.

Social Media Circle Jerk Sanctimonious and sour pussed puckered up and sucker punched faces of the public domain. What twisted and retarded offspring You have propagated with the fornicated fist fuck couple of celebrity and social media. Social media, the most anti-social circle jerk that I have ever been invited to. Oh and conservative liberal PC America Fuck you. You are the python with its fangs In its own mon pubis. You are the hyena with a hard on for your own laugh track. You are the next in line to be called out for accusation in this world of pinky toe caught in the door pain and simple cause and effect. Social media the most anti-social circle jerk I have ever been invited to. Oh and conservative liberal PC America Fuck you. You and your puritanical talkshow prudeness your San Fernando porno capital of the world fuckfest your obsession with tits, all except the nip your continious fear of even a limp dick just makes you all come across to the rest of the world as a bunch of pricks with bleached anuses whose online orgies are highly overrated. Social media the most anti-social circle jerk I have ever been invited to. and Oh conservative liberal PC America, well Fuck You.

Yeah Patriotic Peter, You just go and burn All your t-shirts and shorts your headbands and ankle socks covered in those fucking ugly swooshes too! Just Do It! What? And while you’re at it constituion clutching Chuck why don’t you just shred those Air Jordans and flush that number 23 jersey down the drain. Dump those Kobe Mamba Hyperdunks into the polluted sewers flushing into the Pacific. And while your at it BBQ Betty Why don’t you sell off all those Serena William’s Court Power dresses to some psychopath trolling around on Craigslist too. Yeah Man! What? Go ahead and Just Do It! What? (pause) Yeah, you too #2ndAmendment Sally go ahead and What? Just Do It! Burn those synthetic swooshes into toxic ash and get on with your small minded nationalistic clickbait lifestyles choices too, cause those freedoms that you claim to hold so dear and which allows you to do just about anything in the United States of America. is a freedom that thousands of American black men will never have a chance to feel and will never ever be able to do just about anything why? cause they’re already just dead. So yeah, you just go ahead and What? Just Do It! Do what you gotta do folks. cause Colin is doing just what he needs to do too.

There ain’t no travel ban on the dance floor The poisoned populist perspectives the peepholes in our collective consciousness the underdogs being denied coverage the delusions of grandeur of the gloryhole demi-gods and the claim that some cop in Arkansas actually saw a pig fly but there still ain’t no travel ban on the dance floor. Cultures being gutted by greed the chaos of choice spread from an angry voice blind conviction leading the redefinition the patriot caught with his pants down and well, hell might be freezing over but there still ain’t no travel ban on the dance floor. The disasterous diplomatic decision making Mother Nature leaning back and waiting in the end it will be the people quaking the panic room propaganda has got us all shaking once in a blue moon orange faced political faking but there still ain’t no travel ban on the dance floor. Religion in retrogradation the spectre salivating over a smorgasbord of imaginary salvation humanity held in a head lock the hindsight that will haunt us in the all too late hours and maybe just maybe one day the sun will rise in the west but for now, boys and girls there still ain’t no travel ban on the dance floor.

These are the words that we will say to make us feel better about ourselves on the 5th of May. When tolerantion becomes a word that people just say instead of what they really want to say which is that those who are different need to get the fuck out of their way When understanding is a cracked glass ceiling that the populace is stomping upon When compassion born out of social media passivity becomes the latest crazy Well then, these are all just some words that we will say to make us think that we know anything about freedom on the 5th of May. When trust becomes spying upon one another out of the corners of crossed eyes when the acceptance of the emancipated becomes decimated when self-determination is beaten down into self doubt when the luxuorious world that we have created for ourselves is at the cost of another, well then all those fine words about freedom that we might say are just words with little meaning, said only to make us feel better about ourselves on the 5th of May. If we could catch toleration by its tail and swing it around our heads like a flag at some diversity day parade and stop blaming immigrants for stealing jobs that most people are too proud to do then put a bit of back bone behind all the beautiful words that we will say then maybe just maybe we can find a true meaning behind all the words dancing around freedom on the 5th of May. On the 5th On the 5th On the 5th… Freedom of Choice! Freedom of Speech! Freedom of Religion! Free to be! Freedom of Sexuality! On the 5th On the 5th On the 5th of Fucking May.

The Wormhole Forming Outside the Zeeman. I was walking out of the supermarket just the other day and low and behold who do I run into but the 17 year old version of myself. I have to say that I was a bit taken aback. Honestly I didn’t even recognize the skinny dude with a green mohawk and Dead Kennedy’s tshirt right away. I mean who would recognize their younger self just showing up there right in front of you, that’s some sort of Back to the Future kind of shit if you ask me. Now anyway, the young punk version of myself comes strutting right up to me and he grabs me by my arm and he says, “hey man, you gotta listen to more Butthole Surfers, for it’s the only way!” And I just stood there and smiled and nodded, knowing that this kid, he was right. Then I watched as that seventeen year old punk rock version of myself just turned and walked away. And down the street I heard some kids in front of the Garonne Ice Cream Parlor call him a “freak”. And you know what that seventeen year old punk rock version of myself did? Oh, it made me so damn proud, he turned to those boys sitting outside the Garonne Ice Cream Parlor and he said, “Hey fellas, well Fuck You!” and gave them all the middle finger, then jumped on his skateboard and did a backside ollie flip right into the wormhole forming outside the Zeeman. Yeah that wormhole forming outside the Zeeman. Yeah the wormhole outside the Zeeman.

Students of the American Educational System Students of the American Educational System get up out of your chairs and walk out of your classrooms. Stop being sitting ducks for all those white fucks with all the big bucks. Put down your Ipads walk out of your schools and revolt against the amendment that keeps you in its crosshairs. For there is No Rational Argument any more. Students of the American Educational System you have been failed and are being taught to live in fear. Your peers, soldiers of misfortune your blood bought and sold like buckshot Your lunchrooms shooting galleries Your playgrounds cementeries Where bullying has lead to bulletholes. And why have your elected civil servants taken No Reasonable Action at all? Teachers of the American Educational System how long will you tolerate being bodyguards and human shields for unformed minds? For this is not even close to being covered by your blue cross or blue shield. Superintendents of the American Educational System, what you have done to stop all of this insanity is as if No Reaction At all will make all the pain go away.

I’m not going to tell you. I am not going to tell you about what’s going in the world. I have said enough already and you, should know better by now. I’m not going to tell you what’s going on in the world. I ain’t going a paint you a pretty picture using overpriced oil paints or connect the dots on the backside of a children’s menu and I am sure as shit not going to write a poem about it, for you. I’m not going to tell you what’s going on in the world I have said enough already and you, should know better by now. But I am gonna tell you about our neighbor dying in the middle of the night, having had a stroke soon after she finished her nursing shift, had gotten home and was just about to put up her feet. Cause theses are the things that we need to talk about. And if you’re still too young to understand and actually comprehend what goes on in this world well that, is a beautiful thing. I am not going to tell you about what’s going on in this world But I do know that I am going to need to show you somehow instead.

Jager 04:26
Ik ben een jager, En ik jaag graag Op jongens en meisjes die een jas dragen met een bontkraag. Ik wacht bij de kermis op het plein Met zicht op de botsautootjes Het is bijna middernacht De mist hangt over de gesloten attracties In de verte zie ik mijn prooi. De rode punt van brandende Marlboro Lites. Hangt in de lucht, Ik weet dat ze daar zijn. Ik zie de witte lampjes van de brommers en Hoor het irritante geluid van meerdere brommers op de weg. Ik adem in en uit en luister. Ik hoor het stoere praten van tieners de gillende stem en het gegiegel van de dames de brutale stomme lach van de nog jonge mannelijke variant. De jongens proberen elkaar uit te dagen Om de meisjes te overwinnen Een bacardi breezer fles is kapot gemaakt) een vechtpartij breekt los De politie op het plein is bang En doet niks, De mannen en vrouwen in blauw pak blijven op een afstand. Ik maak mijzelf klaar, en kijk in mijn vizier. Ik wacht...op een goed schot. Ik ben een jager. En ik jaag graag Op jongens en meisjes die een jas dragen met een bontkraag.

I could never have imagined that we would end up taking it all so seriously shaking our heads, dumfounded by all the ridiculous shit that has overcome us but we have and we do and the skies are still blue like an illusion and the skies are still blue like an illusion. She was as sharp as a pencil and always had a way of getting her point across. When she died at the age of 35 of lead poisoning it was of little suprise to any of us. In his eulogy her husband said between a tear and a wink that his wife had never gotten a tattoo because of her disdain for ink. and the skies are still blue like an illusion and the skies are still blue like an illusion. Growing up in the suburbs, I never did have a neighbor who was a communist but if I had, I’m sure that he would have told me that, more or less give or take you’ll never catch a fucking break by wearing an oven mitt to a baseball game. and the skies are still blue like an illusion and the skies are still blue like an illusion. And the seas are still cluttered by ballons whose attached language grew too heavy to bare. And the planets well they never asked to be discovered. And our toleration for one well has become a bit malnourished don’t ya think. And our curiosity well, has gotten the best of us as we push aside the curtain every morning just to confirm once more that the skies are still blue like an illusion and the skies are still blue like an illusion.

Roy Moore’s Wife said it best, when she said that… One of my lawyer’s is Jew One of my garbage men is a dago One of my secretaries is a dyke. One of my dry cleaners is a chink One of my bartenders is a mick One of the guys who washes my car I call a spic. One of my gardeners is a wetback One of my bandmates is a camel jockey One of my gym buddies is a gender fluid goy. One of my house painters a Polack One of my mechanics a redkneck One of my post carriers a cracka faggot. One of my deli guys is a dot head One of my surgeons is a gook One of my IT guys I call Apu. One of my best friends is a lesbian Canadian One of my pharmacologists is a kike One of my neighbors is a nig…..oh no let’s not make it all about that! And one of the biggest problems facing us as a society of men and women of races and religions is not so much if someone is awoke or uses languages that provokes or just can’t take a fucking joke but that some people are just plain fucked and no amount of lubrication is going to help get that stick out of their bigoted asses any time soon.

Everything at all times and all things at once. Save me from my self righteous self allow me my sarcasm and rest, swallow a cynical pill instead of smoking to help make me a better person and may my fuck off attitude liberate me from thee. Everything at all times and all things at once. Everything at all times And all things at once. Don’t let a bad attitude get in the way of good manners, and a self-deprecating sense of humor will get any human animal through a vomit and shit stained night. A racist joke only makes you racist when you feel that undying need to tell it, and well that is what can makes them so god damn funny. And remember don’t let a bad attitude get in the way of good manners. for Everything at all times and all things at once. Everything at all times and all things at once. Deliver thyself from stupidty and know that it will take longer than a Dominos pizza for enlightenment to ever arrive. Use aerobic exercise as a way to tighten your own ass so as to create diamonds from all the bullshit shoved back up. And a weak handshake will keep you walking into walls instead of opening doors, you know what I’m talking about, right? for Everything at all times and all things at once. Everything at all times and all things at once. Sing, puke and piss all over the typewriter machine. Scream yourself silly before you sign out. Delete your search history before going to bed. And know in your heart that your spouse could stab you while you sleep. Everything at all times and all things at once. Everything at all times and all things at once.
