No Time for Smiles


The Mother sits raped and weeping

As her children all wander of

To practice the smiles they find necessary

To mask the truth and make it in today’s world

~

Humanity beat and bleeding, the constant chaffing

Making it impossible for the open wounds to heal

The streets scattered with vials

As even the suburbs are undermined

By a force stronger than the human will

~

Chemical infestations

~

The rivers roll flowing sluggishly

Slowly carrying the toxins out to sea

As another species becomes extinct

By us as we sit and stare mindlessly

At Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom

Grateful for the grace and beauty

Granted by God’s generosity in nature

While Mother’s nature is slowly destroyed

By the twisted interpretation of human nature

~

As her children all wander off

To practice the smiles they find necessary

To mask the truth and make it in today’s world

~

(another one from ’91)
