and then these sunlit days of obvious joy

or the song you sing w/
yr face smashed in

the blood of christ
collected in a plastic cup

what matters here is that
love is not an ocean

the value of human life has
become negligible when set
against the value of oil or
gold and what we consider
are the reasons how

what we contemplate is why

and there are always more
children to replace the ones
who starve to death to
replace the ones who are
raped who are butchered by
soldiers and by priests and
there is always more wealth
to be stolen and more
wars to be won

takes some serious fucking
pain to keep you up and
running in the land
of the free
