the next time I reincarnate
I hope it will be in the ruins
of this bright 'new beginning'
launching in this present time
this alleged 'Golden Age'
of technology and expanded ethics
which are nothing more than
the old tyrannies of human nature
in shiny spiritual drag
where all one group can think of
is vengeance against the ones
who oppressed them previously
and now are having their noble self-righteous
posturing pass as 'justice'
perpetuating the same sins of hate and intolerance
as those who came before...
I want to come back after the assholes
of this current generation play their hands
and are as bereft as the oppressors who put them down
I want to come back to needle them
to be the same ersatz Jeremiah who curses them now
to thank them for dragging the rest of us into their holes
of hell which is just to show I'm no better than anyone else
I have my own path for which to atone
I have my own beef with God and God's miscreants
and whatever purity I can maintain
will save whatever righteousness there truly is
it simply is not for us to say
'love and do what you will and let God keep the books'
are any of us really ready for such responsibility?
it doesn't matter...it is thrush on us and it is ours to attend...
that's when I want to come back...to forgive and heal or avenge and feel glad....
