New Infection

New Infection

A Poem by Mister_Ryan

Where we stand might as well be alien territory
     it just doesn't feel right but we're here anyway,
     f*****g the crazy out of the world and passing
     on better genes missed out by another year's abortion.

Our thirst changes with the seasons so it'll be a
     requirement that we get new shots, new explanation,
     new infection designed to realign the tracks so our
     biology diverges from the course we fear less.

Institutionalized, constitutionalized, contractually obligated,
     legally binding signatures keep these hands cuffed
     behind our backs until the occasional erosion of
     the chains and they snap.

We can repoison ourselves or we can face that which
     holds us captive, that which was once familiar but
     has alienated us from the existence we once were.
     If you choose, we can betray ourselves to fully become ourselves.

If you can, the who can? It's called a lose, lose,
     lose and in the end it won't matter much more
     to anyone but ourselves so if it didn't matter once before,
     don't pretend it's gonna matter now; so stop pretending.

I really love the near rhyming here for starters. But also the message that's very wrapped up in the words. I envy people who can really bury a meaning in words and require a much deeper reading into the poetry and you do that really well here I think, it took a few read throughs to grasp everything you had squeezed into this economic little space of words. I tend to be pretty black and white with words, but your work is inspiring me to do a little more digging. Loved it.
