Random Poem:

Passivism
dtgartman

Livid we are – livid and boiling over;
 1
Living in a pressure-cooked era of castration.
 2
We quit our quietude, rage undercover,
 3
Raving gently angry, at some cruel abomination.
 4
We join the flaccid phalanx, to come to idle blows
 5
With some great ogre army, glaring back
 6
Through insistent eyes; in truth, we like our foes
 7
To soften their defenses, for our attack
 8
Will be silent and without any forceful force;
 9
And if we fail to sit them all into submission
 10
Those other “active” fools can yell themselves hoarse
 11
In an oh-so-effectively effortless attrition;
 12
We are the foremost fighting generation –
 13
Our front: an armchair scene of masturbation
 14
