Rinse And Repeat2



Rinse and
repeat.
Humanity
stratified.
From the
beginning,
hierarchies
prevailed.
The few
controlling
the many.
Layers
of control
corralling
the mob.
Dictating
the rules.
Writing
the books.
Generation
one to
the next.
Same.
Always
the few
calling
the shots.
Humanity,
genetically
shuffled
programmed
for such
outcomes.
Millennia
formulation’s
played out.
Something
now new
on the
horizon.
Never
before seen.
Beaming
control,
grabbing
views
globally,
instantly.
Warping
perception,
shaping
reality.
Global
mind
circling,
seizing
control.
Captured
the high
ground.
Rinsing
perceptions,
driving the
mob.
Controlling
to comport.
Gutting
individualism.
Humanity
on the
ropes.
Will never
be the
same.

John Prophet

John Prophet is considered by many in the literary community to be the Salvador Dalí of poetry. His rough-hewn unfettered style mimics the artist’s unconventional view of perceived reality. Prophet encourages (through the skeletal approach of his writings) the reader to focus on the individual meaning of each word, thus allowing its message to be front and center. Meaning that can be muted within sentences and paragraphs. This creates vividness otherwise hidden. The skeletal nature of his efforts also allows the reader to flesh out meaning based on the readers personal worldview. Thus, no two observers are reading the exact same creation. more…
