MACHINES

Sometimes people remind
me of machines.
They go about calling
facts of the task at hand
to mind in bleak
mindless discourse.
We condone convention
to panegyric oaths

mouthed in boredom
by shameless shamans.
"Thanks for a job jolly
well done," becomes our epitaph,
and the joke of history
is, "I think
therefore,
I . . . huh?"
A poem that reeks of my cynicism and discontent.

I totally understand this one completely, there are times I feel like that, I like the way its totally open and saying what you felt when you wrote it. Great work!

Thanks, believe it or not, I have a degree in English lit and not art. I concentrated on the Romantic Period poets. :)

Hey, did I write this? Kidding. I love the message and the cynical edge. I always enjoy your writing.

Thanks, Sara - you know you're too young to be this cynical and jaded. Unfortunately, the incompetent administration of the past eight years had made it possible for MANY young people who can actually think for themselves. :)

haha yea...you would think so, but unfortunately(or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) cynicism knows no boundary of age. I live in the same world as you.
Even before the Bush administration, people were still people doing what people do...

Yes, you're absolutely right, but Bush seemed to remove the shame and the mask from being so openly vengeful and corrupt. I've been a devout cynic since the Nixon years and being an equal opportunity cynic have hated the administrations of many Democratic/Liberal Presidents as well.

I can agree with that, but there is more to resent other then the government. It's like what Albert Einstein had said:
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."

Oh you're absolutely right - organized religion is also a pet peeve of mine, and unfortunately in the U.S. they are closely tied together.

absolutely, religion is unfortunately tied to everything, not just the government. They have to have their ignorant hand thrust into every aspect of modern society. They are the ones who still want "creationism" taught in hs biology class(as a counterpoint to evolution), as if a vague metaphorical book written by people they have never met in a time before science, has any merit in a science class. Faith apparently is science. Never mind the fact that you can't test the validity of the bible, it must be taught anyway. Hell, I could write a holy book and if I am a good speaker and play my cards right maybe in a couple thousand years(if the earth is still here) I could also be a prophet and be the cause of segregation, hate and wars. Yay!
