Oil and Water
of a peaceful mind
in so long if ever trulyI’ve been always at odds
with the overall masque
the vanity of modernAmerica with its
haunting the populacea society of people
who don’t want to
explore their mindssoon enough Thought will be thrown its death
impaled upon the white picket fences of suburbia.
turnstiling through these days
made of illusion and lies
the hamster wheel spinneth eternal
…fan rotation and so on…
unlatch from this loop
to see that circular paths are false
for the Truth lives within the Spiral.
to unsnag the grindstone endlessly turning
one must disconnect oneself
in order to stop this massively insane friction.
