the Irrational Community,
lurch to bomb bad Syrup:
Hexbollocks and Purrshah,
And wake up in bed with Al Capone.
Mulberry Bush Obama spins.
Gnostics, Coptics, and Cardtricks bluff and bully:
‘Come on in, the slaughter’s warm this season!’
resounds to the gunfire crackle;
Badger, set, and batch.
A Chinese boy weeps blood from hollow sockets
his eyes lay gouged out unseen before him on soft, red clay.
Yesterday there was a Dream
Today there is a Nightmare
