Beat (world)







Low murmurs of talk
The children are taught
languages of
lost tradition
Years passed in torches
acts of contrition
Wars of borders
sheltered revolution
Just to come back to a
evolution
A simple human being
An extraordinary
species
that forgot nature
Embracing anything
everything
A past
a present
a future
The mass
of devastating
confusion
A lost
constitution,
running down tins of
thirty five cent beers
and hardened tears

We learn
We yearn
This life we earned
that runs down long city streets,
eats your body and soul,
smells of urine in cold alleys
Or reaches for an embrace
that chases the sunset

We’re coins set spinning
Lights dimming
Concrete steeples beaming,
with the electricity of
a new beginning,
beat in a system,

bleeding

Chasing digital screens of listed,
human beings
That are faceless in glass
Protected tubes
We can be anything we want
A women,
A man,
A robot,
A can

Uncle fucking Sam,
with a taxing,
shaking hand,
or a midget dictator,
sitting on a throne,
A father or mother,
A son a daughter,
A priest or a nun,
The sexy lace undone

Anything is everything
A generation of nothing
Looking into empty eyes
Because pain is,
a world insane

Running from the cops,
throwing rocks of change
The system remains,
while a world is chained,
and the poets are,
the wings of,
our escape

ALSO BEAT

From China, India,
and Texas
From Israel and Lebanon,

we've seen it
all

The peace we have
lost
In a tube,
behind a glass,
tossed in a mood,
without a,
border
look over there,
over your shoulder,
the weapons of truth

We’re all beat,
in an allegiance
of cheat

In God we trust?

printed

On a dollar bill,
a rusted thrill
Hidden under the panties
of  a stripping slave

who will it save…
