Identical Identifiers

January 9, 2023



For those having an

Identity crisis

By those

Isolating themselves

Identifying in a group

Within the larger whole

Of essentially

The same group

Let’s call them Beauties

Bipedal Earthling Artists

United To Include Every Skeleton

Which, just learned is a “backronym”

Annnnywaaaaay

If instead of the news reporting

That a white nationalist

(Disguised as a cop)

Shot an unarmed black man

(For being black)

It was reported that a BEA

Bipedal Earthling Artist

Shot another BEA

Bipedal Earthling Artist

There would be

No group’s side to cling to

Defend or attack

Just the whole of Beauties

Trying figure out how

To stop the violence

Since every Bipedal Earthling Artist

Would realize / consider

It is happening to them, by them

Same goes for that

Eastern Europe conflict

Going on between

Russia and Ukraine

Being backed by the US

Which examined through

An Orwellian literal lens

Sounds like Eastasia

Is warring with Eurasia

Backed by Oceania

That in a moments notice

Shorter than a two minute hate rally

Could change to Eurasia

Fighting Oceania backed by Eastasia

When instead if it

Was reported that

Beauties were killing Beauties

For oil territory

(Quite sure, that’s what it is)

(Kind of like when the US went to Somalia

To “feed” starving people. Hmmmmm.)

Enough Beauties

Would get together

To inform the

Warring Beauties

Which are attacking Beauties

And defending Beauties

That the resources

Belong to all the Beauties

And figure out sharing methods

To make this world beautiful



Trouble is

There is no corporate

Hoarding of wealth

For that solution

To not manipulate emotions

Keeping people separated

By trivial identifiers

“Cause that’s all you ever hear about in this country. It’s our differences. That’s all the media and the politicians are ever talking about–the things that separate us, things that make us different from one another. 

That’s the way the ruling class operates in any society. They try to divide the rest of the people. They keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other so that they, the rich, can run off with all the fucking money!

Fairly simple thing. Happens to work. You know? Anything different–that’s what they’re gonna talk about–race, religion, ethnic and national background, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality, anything they can do to keep us fighting with each other, so that they can keep going to the bank!”

– George Carlin

Such as which group of Beauties

Is waving a colorful cloth

Exaggerating geographical pride

To the point of eliminating Beauties

Waving a different rectangle cloth


“Just an observation,
Maybe I need
Different glasses.”

– Angelo Devlin



“Territories”

“I see the Middle Kingdom
Between Heaven and Earth
Like the Chinese call
The country of their birth

We all figure that our homes
Are set above
Other people than the ones
We know and love

In every place with a name
They play the same territorial game
Hiding behind the lines
Sending up warning signs

The whole wide world
An endless universe
Yet we keep looking through
The eyeglass in reverse

Don’t feed the people
But we feed the machines
Can’t really feel
What international means

In different circles,
We keep holding our ground
Indifferent circles,
We keep spinning round and round

We see so many tribes
Overrun and undermined
While their invaders dream
Of lands they’ve left behind

Better people… better food…
And better beer…
Why move around the world
When Eden was so near?

The bosses get talking so tough
And if that wasn’t evil enough
We get the drunken and passionate pride
Of the citizens along for the ride

They shoot without shame
In the name of a piece of dirt
For a change of accent
Or the color of your shirt

Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colorful rag is unfurled”


– Rush
