The Medically Crucified

PineCross-1050615

The crucified tree lay in the lake.
Its crime unknown, no plea to make.
No holy authority blessed its spirit.
The sun kissed the corpse
to morn its energy within it.

Americans die, thousands times ten,
victims of doctors’ simple pens
prescribing addicting drugs,
for minor distress, like simple thugs.
Then chat with suppliers on manicured greens,
chat, joke and putt with hands quite clean
soon to be holding a crystal glass
with rising bubbles and illusions of class.
They kill more Americans every year
than decades of terrorists wearing beards,
yet enjoy prestige, wealth and lovers,
and sometimes smile from magazine covers.
It’s the American way, you see,
as easy as crucifying a tree.

”Serial killers kill quickly, but not too many.
Serial murders murder structurally over time,
time and time and time again and much too many.”
