Determinate Negation Shall Inherit [Today's News Poem, December 15, 2010]

Determinate Negation Shall Inherit [Today's News Poem, December 15, 2010]

'In the Bible'—they said it would answer,
But those characters never compelled me
As the ozone on Muni, as banshees
In their garbage bag raincoats and sermons
On the mounts made of cardboard; nor payments,
Nor anxiety, nor credits, nor debits.
All the heirs reek of arrogance; meekness
Is insanity—worse, a demerit.
Like the Soviet dissidents locked-up
In the prisons obedience conjured,
Like the magic of God or the spirits,
They will trick you—attack while you're able
And resist with disorder—expire yourself.

"My Testament: Some people (the government sponsored media) will say I was evil, a monster (V)… no… I was just born poor in a country where the Wealthy manipulate, use, abuse, and economically enslave 95% of the population. Rich Republicans, Rich Democrats… same-same… rich… they take turns fleecing us… our few dollars… pyramiding the wealth for themselves. The 95%… the us, in US of A, are the neo slaves of the Global South. Our Masters, the Wealthy, do, as they like to us… "

This is so heart-breaking. I avoided watching the footage on the local news stations. I'd had a stressful day and couldn't handle much. Then, to read your poem and view the video for the first time, I'm enraged. I don't have any sympathy for the gunman, which is unlike me.
