Insanity in a Nutshell


Insanity in a Nutshell

Drape a flag and call it a day’s work

say a few words and hop on your foot

for Jesus and his friend the holy ghost,

Uncle Sam rewards us

with a two hundred dollar grave marker

a reward they say for killing and dying.

Post Traumatic Stress they say

will get you through the day

with a gummy bear

and claws of chocolate Easter bunnies

with just a hint of Thorazine.

Innocence is today’s cartoon,

tomorrow’s loss of life.

Somebody’s god must be real

He’s gone fishing I guess,

no time today to cure our nightmares.
