dread,black and blue



Macrocosm of unregimented hedonistic dissemination
Haute disgust abounds.
Recherche' idiosyncratics merit more then preeminent melioration.
Tired of the hubris isolence.
This illusion of an American dream,
Honestly, it was destroyed decades ago.
Annihilation knocks at liberty's door
Knock, knock
who shall answer?
Big brother abides watching
dawn to dusk to dawn
Senators scheme the bankers dreams
Affluent count their wealth
while workers grieve and grease the wheel.
