Death of men is back!

Death of men is back!

A Poem by Maxwell Ryder

Men babble on in Babylon
Reapers darken the door
The death of men is back;

The plague's "black," they'll say,
Yet the shade wasn't beige
Yesterday at Mandalay Bay!

False witness kills innocents,
Surveillance kills eyewitnesses,
And the MSM kills facts;

Racism salts the wounds
In shameful, senseless acts;
Hope and change are dashed.

The audacity of omission
On the front pages, splash;
All's left is nihilism and blues,

Gunned down,
In a hail of fake news;
And not a soul will act!

We've come full circle -
Futile is our feudal lord;
F**k your imperial views!

Automatic rifles double
As biblical w****s,
Naked in their owner's rack!
