Open Wound World by Richard Bell

bloody eyesPictures slice my eyeballs frame by frame with shallow cuts
Lacerate the psyche and then gouge into dismay
Horror show is rated by a drive by voyeur media
Slanting our opinions and then pissing on our graves
Open wound world you are sore and you are festering
No time to coagulate as another slice is taken
Transfixed terrified by your vulgar gut wrenched news alerts
The politics behind the propaganda unmistakable

Scary tv
The media make monsters to deter the truth behind the lie
Slaughter, hell and acts of god are indivisible
Starvation and disease are just exasperating sameness
Reconstituted slop served in a bun to make it plausible
Sexuality is a dead weight that drags behind us all
As though it is achievement or a reason to divide
The wonderment of life that is a spark lit for eternity
Instead a paper ticket for a cheap amusement ride
Faith is hope and glory for the simple life of piety
Twisted into anagrams and seared in deep mistrust
What use is a promise of the nourishment of afterlife?
When swollen bellies pray for life to grow out of baked dust
Predators, provocateurs, liars and idolaters
Swathed in precious metals and gyrating ignominy
Branded for the clones that are not friends but merely followers
Each more ludicrous than the last hypocrisy
Vultures sit atop a stack of wasted flesh by murder
Megalomaniacs make threats and the weapons race is on
Security by numbers in a sequence behind firewalls
What would we inherit if the whole world launched a bomb?
Fertile ground receding from a desert and a poisoned sea
Fields of Frankenstein food sway in weather that’s man-made
One half swills in gluttony a bloated self- indulgent breed
The other half surrendered to a charity charade
Open wound world you are sore and you are festering
No time to coagulate as another slice is taken
Austerity drives down the poor and bolsters those with riches
And silent preparation is the task for those awakened.

ripping face
