A Poem A Day writing prompt: Surely the Second Coming is at hand

In 2012 “Making a living” is not just breathing and existing,
Profits are called “killings”
Madmen in suits are the rulers;
I wonder how they measure up to those who liberated us,

2012, the year of civil war against the weave, scissors and clippers in the war against RELAXer!
Odd how in 2012 even airheads are on television
Heads are in the air I only see their bodies,

The passion left while the self centered, “get that money right” was made up
the love runs down and out,
Massacre’s of the working class is the script that Karl Marx
Through crosses with red ink

Send an S.O.S’s at the thought; this year is not yet over.
