failed drug test

and you have to wonder

about grown men

that wanna analyze piss

and just what is running

through their heads

and someday

this war is gonna end

and we already know who won

and who lost

but the persistence

of useless battles remain

a great undoing; blindly randomly

open fire into a crowd

as the surrealist masses

become cube figurines

in a Picasso painting

and the blood doesn’t

seem as real anymore

and the enemy twirls

a pencil thin mustache

and nothing gained

is nothing ventured

and we’re all POW’s

in this ongoing war

that isn’t winning battle

or earning any ground

We’re heading down the river

in hopes of some success

but I ain’t really

holding my breath
