Oily Dreams

Richie ain’t worried
about the price of gas for their limousines,
SUV’s, or otherwise gas guzzlers.
They might worry about their slaves
not being able to afford to get to work.
Politicians have a propensity
of proffering the false pretentiousness
that they know everything
…oh how solidly they believe
they were made in God’s image
ergo their actions are Godlike authority
to control all natural resources
Richie Richie go away
do not return another day
this Earth, per se,
et al that lives upon it, is suffocating.
…don’ worry, be happy,
like Pinocchio’s nose
driping with lies
the ultimate end of graspy greed is
(and all of human history proves it)
is to fall – to drown
in Oily Dreams.
