even sunshine makes shadows...
and, in the depths of its hallows
lurks the modern equivalent
forces made malevolent
by occult ritual
meant only for the "initiates"
from college sororities and fraternities
to ivy skull-brained-frat-brat-packs
in the not-to-hidden mysteries
as our ancestors, our survival
is dependent on our abrupt

read of the scent on the wind...

pictographs to hieroglyphs
to binary 0 and 1 codes in
Old and New Testaments
looking to "connect-the-dots"

citizen's CIA renditions
to rogue countries not bound
or "quaint" Geneva Conventions
our leader a bust
found deceptive to US
to orchestrate a slaughter
based on draconian ideologues
with "higher fathers"
in empty rooms
[let's hope not: our destiny]
than his fraternity's "tomb"...
