Poetry Corner: “Optical Illusion Oasis”

Optical Illusion Oasis

People sitting under the great Canadian fright
drinking heavily in the village of neon light
pretensions of affairs being outta sight
really nothing more than a herd of uptight

Such a pathetic sight
strongest on a Friday night
people with nothing to do
except play acting cool fools
floundering in the human cesspool

Death should be superior
so come join me today or tomorrow
for you are already dead
what can you do in life
I tell you
you are needless and superfluous
like pieces of gum
the black suited monsters
crush without pity on their way to paper colonies
refusing the cries of the trampled

Come join me in the land of the insane
where every day does not end up a futile game
soulless butchered minds craving dead maggots
that’s what we are
no schools of respectability
only dens of perverse sadistic crazed nobility
souls of the living cry to join us
so if you haven’t guessed it I am Lucifer but which hell is better
yours or mine
you’ll find out in due course of time
