If Dr. Seuss spoke Stranger Truth…

tripleslingjiggerEach morning as I wake up I turn on my TV set
To see if the daily dose of terrorism’s happened yet

A habit most unusual I guess I must agree
wondering if today’s the day they’ll finally kick off World War Three

or if the DOW will plummet to the basement like a rock
sending global markets reeling and economies to shock

If you ask me how I came to such a cynical perspective
Then just humor me a moment while I get a bit reflective

The world we know today did not just suddenly turn sour
the problems going on right now began way back in that first hour

When fruits forbidden tasted sweet but led to an eviction
and serpent seeds were planted in the garden’s dereliction

Thus through the many centuries which followed this in time
were gods, who were not gods, yet being worshipped in their prime

Teaching men so many things of which they surely ought not know
False histories, dark mysteries, all coming from below

And so this tragic partnership endured down through the ages
Secrets guarded jealously by mystics, cults and sages

On to this very hour now in which we all are living
This quest to turn men into gods, it’s dead gifts keep on giving

So this is why we all can look around and plainly see
a planet quite beset with copious iniquity

The rivers flow with toxins and the oceans foam with bane
the soil is radioactive and there’s acid in the rain

The atmosphere is criss-crossed after jets going flying by
(but I swear there never used to be plaid clouds up in the sky)

The factory foods don’t even breakdown in your stomach’s bile
and there’s chemicals in water just to polish up your smile

plus injections, pills a plenty, good for all your sniffs and sneezes
only problem is the cure is often worse than the diseases

Yet allopathic medicine is only just the start
warfare treats the deaths of millions as almost a form of art

17o8hdxg9niabjpgFirst there came the Nazis and the fascists and the Japs
all united in their zealous drive to wipe us off their maps

after that the Commies suddenly became endowed
with the power to destroy us in a massive mushroom cloud

As decades passed both arsenals increasingly inflated
as Hollywood made sure to keep the Soviets all hated

And after we all thought atomic doom’s specter had lifted
A morning in September forced our gazes to be shifted

this time to Arab enemies all hiding in their caves
who now must all be bombed into their dirty mountain graves

and so it is that Evil’s Axis constantly is turning
lest the Pentagon’s war engines all seize up and stop their churning

So many things were set in motion on that fateful day
when three steel towers fell as though made of paper mache

Each year now since, it so would seem, that flags keep flying falsely
events designed no doubt to increase our collective palsy

the next in line was Syria, invade them in their crisis
they called for war, at which we balked, and now, look, here comes ISIS…

knottyproblemBut could it be?  The very thought…  Our own leaders implicated?
Just pause my friend and please consider all they’ve now dictated

Greener lights for budgets black, when safety is the goal
airport fondlers have to search for “contraband-in-hole”

the cops now look like soldiers, and our soldiers are the best
if you don’t cower as expected then you do deserve arrest

The NSA is listening, always digitally aware
Everything you’ve ever done online in data files, somewhere…

But it gets even weirder, as you looks behind the scenes
and study harder these elites who say the ends warrant the means

If it’s just a bunch of rich folks wanting to be richer still
then why these other strange pursuits which go beyond that bill?

Why do they pray to owls of stone and act out divinations?
Why frolic where the Redwoods hide their sordid recreations…?

Why do so many men of stature, prominence and brass?
All hail from the same frat house where a skull’s a drinking glass?

And please would someone tell me what exactly’s going on
with that phalus made of stone shadowing the White House lawn…

Our holy-days all point to ancient pagan gods of old
and our favorite ritual now is one we call the “Super Bowl”

But if you’re getting weary of my ugly rants and rambles
and get tempted to believe that I think all the world’s a shambles

I’ll end by saying even though this all is sad but true
to realize that everything’s under demonic coup

It might be nasty as we look around us in this day
but there WILL come a moment when at last, with no delay

as just when it might seem that no real Faith could still be found
He’ll come as lightning fills the sky, and heaven’s mighty trumpets sound….
