problem solved

federal money for guns in classrooms

so the pigs on the hill can appease

ol’ wayne lapierre.

 

federal money for guns in classrooms

so the likelihood of accidents can increase

to an even more absurd degree.

 

federal money for guns in classrooms

so that when a gun fires in a first grade classroom,

it’s not the only one.

 

federal money for guns in classrooms

so that public schools are so terrifying

no one sends their kids inside.

 

federal money for guns in classrooms

because, as adults, this is how

we solve problems.

 

there is not enough bewilderment

to fill this senseless void;

the place we’ll bury the

dead kids we failed.

spreadsheet warfare

here i come

clicking my mouse

to steal your zeroes.

you have no retirement

because i erased 

column g.

physical limitations, gold,

capped wealth

but now we just keep adding

 digits digitally.

governments get shut down,

people are imprisoned, starve,

die, kill, get blown up,

freeze on the streets, go to work

everyday.

all to ensure

the adding keeps adding to 

this.

the final product.

it’s all working 

beautifully.

we believe in 

the illusion of absurd numbers.

we all believe in 

what we’re doing.

we buy into what

they’ve sold.

we buy it all.
