first, foremost
do no harm
do not sound
the alarm

it is so much more entertaining
to see the rabble roused
confused
and in a panic

we all have to get our kicks somehow

no, do not sound the alarm
they’ve ignored it anyway
and will

some of course have taken heed
it is for them we bleed
it is for them we shout our warnings signs

but it is only they that hear

fuck the rest of them
allow natural selection to complete its task
and in the dawning light, we will bask

for the Inheritors
are those that heed the call

the hum of postmodern civilization is no lullaby
it is the hornets’ nest that gives you no rest
and the hum
and the hum
and the hum

screens and cameras and phones and drones
vomiting their messages all over the senses
and the hum

the sounds of tires on wet and busy roads
is it any wonder we go deaf and blind?
and the hum?
