How they cease to be of any relevance so quickly
is the question that is not considered
by those sifting through the debris
Held back by poor headlines
Gulf war, no money left, banking crisis
spin, spin, spin.
This country has no appetite
for socialism, sadly.
the white van man rules.
it would have helped
to oppose the government.
Instead, you lay down
and as you wait for the killer blow
you point fingers at the past
at each other
rearranging the deck chairs
as the boat is sinking
oblivious, oblivious, oblivious
