A Not So Cerebral Celebration

June 24, 2021

Coming up soon
Beginning of July
Marking 245 years
.
Most things do not
Live that long
With good reason
.
They have lived
Their intended
Purpose at the time
.
Nope
.
Society is going to keep
Its dead and decaying
Corpse on life support
.
If it kills the whole family
The staff in constant
Exhausted code blue
.
Like Darth Vader or the
Tin man the heart is gone
Just running as a machine
.
Underneath an empty shell
Of what could have been
Had not power corrupted
.
Blindly marking its birthday
With tiny explosives bought
From a country some fear
.
While throwing away money
Into its burgeoning economy
To distract itself for three days
.
Ignoring the cold corpse
Plugged in and propped up
For a weekend at Bernie’s
.
Ought society not
Grieve its passing
Then move on
.
To ignite a new revolution
Birth a more enlightened
Planetary Constitution
.
Since awareness has
Proved us not separate from
Our siblings on a sphere
.
What a strange way to vent
About the distaste for
Fireworks and their folley
.
“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”
.
– Angelo Devlin
