Sometime we listen
but what do we hear?

sometime stay still
and breathe
until a deafening silence
opens your senses
to the thunderous barrage

war without dimensions,
relentless cascade,
hate filled, race distilled
of meat on a block

value per pound,
good muscle,
good teeth,
good bad air
to breathe,
until the air
and the water
become values
to bargain and cede.

Good God, why do I say that?
where’s the good in a God
we can trade for a gain,
bring that spirit of holiness,
the word of what profit?
Did I spell that write,
are we slaves 
to our own thoughts,
bred in a cesspit
of greed
dressed as righteousness?
