A Genial Letter

Hello everyone, if this is lacking in quality it's due to me just typing it in as it came to me, no plan no nothing, I just needed to post..............................




A genial letter,
The "S" from the tongue,
With lips slowly parting,
Brutality at one,
With love claiming sorrow,
Life taking death,
To a depression,
Condoning socialist theft,

As television sells us,
Fluoride dreams,
That whitest of whites,
The united themes,
To gain, to prosper,
To lay down your guns,
As a young man lies dead,
The air fucked from his lungs,

She stands in the shadows,
As long as the shadows stand her,
Working the brothel,
Yet longing to care,
But he wasn't gentle,
He was hunting for blood,
The dogs they were raging,
As she did all that she could,
But that's all too vague,
She died as she slept,
An STD victim with noone exempt,
From chasing a lie,
Watching T.V.
Waiting to buy into,
Our fluoride dreams........................

Afterwards I cried for inoccence in a cynical world, I wanted justice but they gave me blood,

All I've got is a red guitar three chords and the truth, The rest is up to you,

But who are you?

Glad to hear from you Zero Dude.....good writing as usual...I'll try to comment on it tomorrow.....I'm trying to battle off an on-coming headache before it becomes full-blown. My body feels battle weary as well. I need to write something myself....but time passes quickly.

"the air fucked from his lungs" is harsh, but something I've not heard before, and powerful.

I also like the way you misdirected with the term "a genial letter", which instead of a page of writing turned out to be just an "S". A nice trick.
