I'm Tired

I'm Tired

I’m tired of mornings’ achy knees,
purpled skin, bleeding gums.
of this undead corpse
swelled-up with poisons

of evenings’, tasteless food,
banal discourse, HBO.
of lying abed alert for sleep,
twisted sheets and dreams

of tarnished dogmas, absolutes,
‘We the People,’ ‘hail to Mary,’
‘turn toward Mecca,’
‘He’ll answer your prayers’

of heeding, bleeding, pleading to
stop the drones,
end the war,
quiet the legions

of cowardly fools’ who fear to say,
what is, just Is.
of doing busy-doings, when now’s too late
for them to matter

in the end
I’m tired of needing to
wake-up tomorrow.

Wow! Very nice. I like your writing style. I remember many nights, many, many similar nights flooded with alcohol to remove the pain that it never could.
