WITHIN: a poem
©2019 DMS3

THE ASSASSIN’S BULLET
RIGHT UNDER THE CHIN

BLOCKING THE LAST SWALLOW
FROM BEGINNING TO END

NOTHING IS LOST BUT NOTHING IS GAINED
ONCE THE BRAIN CLOSED DOWN, SIMPLY INSANE

NOTHING CHANGES THAT’S FOR SURE
SAME OLD SHIT ANOTHER BLUR

CAN WE SAY THAT WE REACHED A SOLUTION
OR IS IT JUST THE START OF A NEW REVOLUTION

DON’T COUNT ON THAT TO REALLY ALL HAPPEN
WHO CAN AGREE WITH ALL THOSE MOUTH’S FLAPPIN’

CROSSING THE STREET THE TRAFFIC ALL SNARLED
PASSIONS ARE RISING LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW

WHO REALLY CARES WHEN LOOKED AT SO CLOSELY
MOST OF THE DEAD ARE OTHER’S FOLKS MOSTLY

VIOLENCE HAS NEVER REALLY WON OVER THE DAY
OR THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE SO OFTEN DO SAY

BUT LOOKS TO ME LIKE IT MATTERS A LOT
IF ITS YOUR OWN FAMILY THAT HAS GOTTEN ALL SHOT

VIOLENCE SETTLES NOTHING THAT IS FOR SURE
IT JUST SETS IT UP SO THAT MORE WILL OCCUR.

NOW DON’T EXPECT ME TO CALM ALL YOUR NERVES
AND GIVE YOU SOME HOPE WON’T HAPPEN FOR SURE

MANKIND HAS ITS ISSUES THERE’S NO NEW NEWS THERE
WE BLOW EVERYTHING UP AND LOOK WITH DESPAIR

NOT KNOWING FOR SOME REASON THAT LOOKING OUT THERE
WON’T FIND THE CULPRIT THAT’S HIDDEN SOMEWHERE

NO NEED TO WORRY AND THERE’S NO NEED TO FRET
THE CULPRIT YOU’RE SEARCHING FOR RESIDES ‘BOVE YOUR NECK

AND MOST OF THE BRAIN-DEAD THAT YOU OFTEN ENCOUNTER
ARE MUCH LIKE YOURSELF AND CONTINUE TO SAUNTER

BUT CLEANING YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS THAT IS THE TASK
AND IS THE ONLY SOLUTION IF YOU WOULD LIKE IT TO LAST

FOR YOU ARE THE PROJECTOR AND LIFE IS YOUR SCREEN
AND THE CLEARER THE VIEWER THE BRIGHTER THE SHEEN

NOW PICKUP YOUR LUGGAGE AND TOSS IT AWAY
AND HEAD DOWN THIS PATH AND FIND THE NEW WAY.

    Let’s try again
    Tube:
    You’re a heavy dude…
    As you constantly decry
    The decay in our society..
    And make us ask ourselves why…
    Why is there a chasm…
    Between our ideals and our life?…
    Why are we always engulfed…
    in turmoil and strife?…
    Why do our leaders..
    Bring us to the brink…
    Of confusion and chaos..
    While their values and actions
    Constantly stink ?…
    Where does Trump come from..
    And why do so many back his play?…
    Is Trump just our doppleganger
    At the end of the day?…
    Many worship Jesus..Mohammed or Buddha…
    As their life’s guiding light…
    But it could be they don’t have it right…
    Our true God may be historian Lord Acton
    Who put it so neatly…
    Power tends to corrupt…
    And absolute power corrupts completely…
