It's 2015

watching the news
on the tv
&
you suddenly realize
that it’s 2015
&
nothing has fuckin’
changed

people are still
killing people
because their skin
is a different
bloody colour
&
politicians
are the same
motherfuckers
as they always
have been

it’s 2015
&
all forms of art
are about profit
&
fame
…15 minutes
on some crazy
fucked up
reality show
&
suddenly
you’re a twit
with a million
mooing humans
hanging off your
every word

for heaven’s sake
it’s 2015
&
no one’s reading
Walt Whitman
anymore

no one’s heard
a word that
Gandhi said

no one’s aware
that consumerism
is the new religion

it’s 2015
&
Jesus is drowning
at the hands
of some commercial
God
while capitalist
Christians
pretend Santa
is the postmodern
Messiah
&
the xmas tree
is the new symbol
of hope

it’s 2015…
