What's a book?

by Oblivious Millenial of the mall or whatever kids do these days
i remember those
old projectors and those slides
and overhead projectors

and even televisions
of a CRT sort carted in on
wheeled carts.

nowadays it is people having to fight the school board for real physical books

Remember back in the day when STDs used to be called VD and after the educational films shown in the 9th grade all the boys in the locker room would laugh and chant "V-D!" like adolescent gorillas?

Sure you do!

we have to in my

ourselves and others

because we are all
too human, and these times would
be a hell of a

lot easier if
some folks managed to get that

Hear ghostly laughter
With freedom freely fleeing
Chances and choices
Reverberation
Through masses with their heads down
Null innovation
Tragedies heap up
Dragons flick their tails in caves
Lambs play up above
Fickle folks forward
Leave the lingering darkness
For their descendents

the whole world with
folks running tourists over in
spain who did nothing

to them but just happened
to be there at the wrong time
those same feelings, the

diverse mobs, the
competing murderous hiveminds
who wish to drink our

blood and rip our flesh
off the bodies, we don't need
The Walking Dead, they

carry signs, burn down
store fronts, smash windows scream
NAZI or WHITE POWER

or something like that
opportunism, the cycle of Ecclesiastes
the time of peace and

the time of war, i
pray it's not too late

the reason i feel
like seeing these things, these idols

think, how far will
people go until they stop
how far will the world

collapse, am i willing
