All Systems Fail

February 19, 2020

Because they are

Glued together with

Delusional thinking

Bound by what works

In successive moments

In linear perception of

Time and circumstance

Quickly disassembling

After purposes served


“Folks, it’s time to evolve. That’s why we’re troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything’s failing?

It’s because, um – they’re no longer relevant.

We’re supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right?

There’s another 90 percent of our brains that we have to illuminate.”

– Bill Hicks

Fully knowing that now

Where do we go from here

Must let go of the sand

Passing through the

Hourglass of eternity

Our hands are dirty

Clinging to what worked

Trying to repeat again

For neither rhyme or reason

Save illusions of security

“There must be some kind of way
out of here, said the joker to the thief.

There’s too much confusion,
I can’t get no relief.”

“All along the watchtower.”

– Jimi  Hendrix
