1015 A DARK P.O.V. 07-30-21

Prophesy is childs play.

Simply peruse the past!

Always

has the Bully stalked,

from tyranasurus

too the tyrant Calligula

too those 20th century champs,

Adolph and Joe.

Who will rise to the bait

this century

remains to be seen.

(Vlad and Donny are thugs

but their lusts are narrow)

Maybe the next bad guy

will manifest not in the guise

of a Superman,

but rather as a gang of Superior Men

(or a Superior Peple,

if this women thing really takes hold.)

But a mob is a a fickle thing

when there is no

One

to lead.

Remember,

the crowd laid palms

and sang their psalms

on Sunday

to some messiah wanna-be

on a donkey

but five days later

they yelled for the cross

and spat in his face

and one of his apostles,

Peter,

after swearing loyalty to the death,

cursed and thrice denied

and then became Pope

and his succession

introduced the white hooded inquisition,

and stretching ropes

and piles of faggots for flames.

How nice.

But we are more civilized lately.

We split atoms only in the name of Science

and send our foes only laboratory plagues.

Waterboarding is just a starter, now.

Always will the Bully

offer us the opportunity

to be what we are at heart.

Maybe,

(if it hasn’t already had its start

in some poor, dusty hovel

in some “shit-hole” country)

we might delay,

for a while,

the rise of the next monster

to leave time for the death of our planet

as we know it….

but the Bully has never been so patient.
