poisoned cup by andrew lovatt on deaddrunkdublin.com

 

poisoned cup

: andrew lovatt


hunger & thirst
despair & desire
lust & necessity
how you circle us
with your sweet
poisoned cup

our souls deflated
run out by prosperity
fast food & popcorn
tv with happy endings
how could we not
be grateful for your war

you raise our lust
with promises
of the blackest enemies
in your klieg light
we can appear
to have halos

comforted by your brand
an illusion of reason
sold as a lifestyle choice
the two burger democracy
of satisfied desires
leaves us hungrier

we will pretend being
who others appear to be
so that our consciences
sleep soundly in their beds
thirsting for more like
dry mouthed expectants
