Dark states

More things will be opening up
and more things will be closing down,
an interesting turn of the turn of the screw
but what can we poor people do?

I see
well read people
well fed people
and
well dead people,
we try to ignore those
but
I still see them.

when it happens
we will know and
we’ll be the first to go
under the hammers
and
into the slammers

we haven’t got a say in this
you can
kiss your arse goodbye,
the only saving grace I see
is
everyone of us has to die.
