Seas of Saturday

This is the last drop off,
the countdown’s begun
to the great rip off
and yet
we’re still getting on
for the ride.

Perhaps we’ll learn
when
cities burn
and the fat lady sings to
the moon,
something tells me
that won’t be happening soon,

too many cops and
too many spooks
watching us while they
cook the books.
