Electric Review

Culture & Criticism From the Far Distant Realms

A Poem Further Contemplating the Evening News

And so is
Your life
(based)
Upon the structure
Of light
(a dearth)
of love
(in)
This world now
(leaves)
Them hungry
And hollow
(surgery)
On healthy individuals?
Cutting sweet
Bloody flesh away
(just)
To make a dollar?
Such action constitutes
Criminal conduct
Against true morality
Of conscience
(it’s)
Up to you
(investigate)
These echoes
Of murderous greed
On your
Own behalf
(I)
Said scream
(holler)
Red faced
At the moon
(ball)
Up your fists
In rage
(it’s)
Only up
To you;
I am responsible
For myself:

Ask questions incessantly.
