i should be angry, but at whom?


Angry Talk (Comic Style)

i would
be shocked
angry
wander around my house
in disbelief

but i am none of these

perhaps i am numb
or just indifferent
having seen the story played out

over and over

and wonder, “Why?”

but it should come as no surprise
that there are angry people
in this country
in this world

i am angry

i am angry at
a government-corporate-military industrial-media complex
that feeds the public pabulum and lies
and though i doubt my kazoo
would be of little use in effective change

there are
and always will be
people whose anger at the lies

forces them to take up arms and end it

this is not to say that i have no compassion
for the victims,
real
and witness victims who must now live with what they’ve seen

but it has happened before
that those who would rule the world
discover
there are too many people
to control
