The words Neocon and Deep State
jitterbug in the media spotlight
feet kicking frantically,
arms flying wildly
asses shaking deliriously.
The music is louder than thoughts.

Sound and fury signifying nothing.

Nothing has changed.
It’s the same empire
only older
with new props on the stage
and the latest batch of clowns.
Conquest is still the name of the play
and war is still the dominant theme.
Nothing has changed
in the character of the empire.
Its condition declines
the weirdos grow weirder.

The global context has changed.
Booing has become more prevalent
than applause
and new shows are attracting audiences
in other places.
Faster dances, louder music
and clownier clowns
paint over rusty cracks.

Garbage
floating to the surface
is said to come
from the Deep State
as tho powers behind the throne
haven’t always been there.

Sound and fury signifying nothing
but hiding
the greed-diseased owners
of the theater
the plays
the clowns
the critics
and the chains
on the audience.
