life on earth is all about

being pulled backward through a hedge

everybody demands action

everyone insists on any apology

and the ones they've wronged

can go to hell as far as they're concerned

well there's where you've gone wrong

with your race cards and your ethnic pride

each of us has been an aggressor or a victim

in one life or another

you have no special codicil with the divine

and your own sins have placed you in these postures

for a reason

a reason you'd ignore if you didn't like the reason

each of us will make another eat shit

for the most bogusly righteous reasons

but who wants to hear that?

who wants to face their own complicity in the matter?


none at all

life on earth is where we learn lessons we ignore

or take to heart wrongly as excuse for our evil

and life on earth will be our finish

where like animals we have no idea of the doom that awaits

but live in the moment of our hungers

pausing for a split second while we chew on remains

to gaze at the sunset

we don't understand...
