The Devil's Hand Basket

As always
The world is breaking
My heart
And I still can’t figure out
Why I care

Without offspring
I have no fear
Of my fallout
Having to deal
With our fallout
And I never appreciated
Our steadfast disregard
Of all things decent
Our self-righteous
Self-serving inability
To recognize our role
In this cosmic performance

Treating war
Like a soap-opera
Social horror
Like a sitcom
Environmental concerns
A laughable commercial
Peddling inconvenient
Arriving much too late

On global suicide
And all we can do
Is wink at the camera
Wave off the blindfold
And stare down
The firing squad
With one last cigarette
