Dinosauria We… Are we really born like this?

Charles BukowskiBorn like this – into this

As the chalk faces smile

As Mrs. Death laughs

As the elevators break

As political landscapes dissolve

As the supermarket bag boy hold a college degree

As the only fish spit out their oily prey

As the sun is masked…

 

We are born like this – into this

Into these carefully mad wars

Into the sight of broken factory windows of emptiness

Into bars where people no longer speak to each other

Into fist fights that end as shootings and knifings

Charles Bukowski1

 

Born into this …

Into Hospitals which are so expensive that it’s cheaper to die

Into lawyers who charge so much that it’s cheaper to plead guilty

Into a country where the jails are full and the madness closed

Into a place where the masses elevate fools into rich Heroes

 

Born into this…

Walking and living through this

Dying because of this

Castrated!

Debauched!

Disinherited!

Because of this!

Fooled by this!

Used by this!

Pissed on by this!

Made crazy and sick by this!

Made violent!

Made inhuman!

By this… !!! (sighs*)

Charles Bukowski 4
