  • Heard yesterday
    that DNA
    can be taken without consent

    seems the fourth amendment
    is sliding down
    the slippery slope

    past the point of no return
    might as well just burn
    the bill of rights

    let the brown shirts
    trample down integrity
    disguised as patriots

    Auschwitz, Manzinar, Guantanamo,
    waterboards, sleep deprivation, drugs
    and work can't make you free

    frustration trumps amendments
    and sets a precedent
    new chains for the new generation

    justified by prejudice
    fear couched in cowardice
    apathy for survival

    how else do we allow
    a junior senator unqualified
    keys to the kingdom

    dismantling every decent
    remnant of the past
    to flaunt stupidity and openly

    espouse his fool's agenda
    while feeding bread and circuses
    to us all.
