After we were colonized and homogenized

After we were colonized and homogenized
More or less, we agreed to be mesmerized.

We sacrificed and gilded a bull to Progress
To atone for the blood of our rapacious lust.

O dazzling Future- bury the past with aplomb:
May all our nervous ticks and screams go numb!

John Wayne never dies but out guns the villain;
Conscience like clorox bleaches away all our sin.

Go ahead, pry this rage from my cold dead hand:
( Hate is one thing the heart will never understand!)

The wheel of karma revolves with serene violence;
The machination of our greed will not be silenced!

We kiss robotic lips with unblinking glazed eyes;
Wake up Darvish- do not place your trust in such lies!
