the Olive Garden special of the day

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

the Olive Garden special of the day

fine lines
thick faces
billy club cadavers walking
Confederate flags proudly waved

1860 is built within the castle
the moat is screaming with alligator breath
This is America,

the Great Great Great canopy
sky writing

Russia is watching you
China is watching you
North Korea is watching you

March on
March on
break the glass

America is falling on her a*s.

This is such a powerful poem on the present unrest. The world is indeed watching, some with shock and sadness, concern and yet some also watching gloating as vultures. I hope the worst is over because the world is in such a fragile state presently.

and the vultures are surely circling...
thank you, DIVYA...
if you look sharply at the glass ceiling you will see little holes where the marionette strings get dropped thru that control the hands typing on keyboard conspiracy theorists and truth manipulators to draw attention away from truth and facts to make the sheeple perform acrobatic feats of stupidity in the name of freedom to seal their fates of bondage! Dear Jacob, we can only witness and whisper and hope the whispers become a scream but we mustn't give up brother!!!!!
