Future Grotesque

Time’s solemn ache traverses freedom,
drunk clowns and thugs
seek obliteration.
History ends, exculpation starts.

Privacy sequestered in virtual weeds,
conformity’s patriotic terror,
ballooning misery
narcotized once more again, always.

Exculpatory explication’s naked hope,
emboldened pleas, flounder: one
by one . . . moon
rising, the spirit quelled succumbs.
