Fete of Perversity
At the Fete of Perversity
Kardashians, cut the ribbon
It was an inspo-quote university
manipulating biddable malignancy
A spectacle o
Art Deco sunshine filters
an Insta-speriential souk
smashed it
And Bush n Blair dribbling
AK47 air guitars
And holographs of Nixon n Kissinger
on drums
At the Dawn of uncivil war
Come come come to the
Merkel Mercedes auction
Shoot shoot shoot
Lucky shot Trump
Guess guess guess the
Gold bullets in a bottle
Rose petal oud
Monsanto tombola food
Drakma.  Dollar.  Euro. Royal. Riyal. Out.
Roll up
Roll up
rubber grenades in your skin
DLT riding a baby mammoth on a plinth
Titanium tanzanite tails to
Platinum camels and donkeys
and ten tonne snails
It’s a Coney island badtrip
Freak shows and weirdos and psychos
Murdoch whip pans
Drone focussed
Paid for this content
The robots
Over Gaza
The terror-drome eggshell bullseye
The quiet
The peace
The people
The megalosaurus
Climbing a flagpole
and Theresa Maypoles
and melting and fracking
and hating and
And bureaucrating
media Jet Stream Rainbow
Over Yemen
And Mosul and Ukraine:
Naked kid writes apolitical songs
freedom fighter
Your brain
Ping ping pow
Take Captagon
So good
So fast
To Die
So Young
On Diamond shattered screens
Ride aside
With cats
Eye flicks
And Brats schtik
Range Rover bomb
amber sky
Ammo fired
Gunfire cried
Displaced Ants ran
Birds sang
Boats sank
Horror songs
Howl dog
FGM Rape scream
Snoop snoop bang
The infadels stopped dancing
Dropped their drinks
Couldn’t think
Vertically distributed smiles
Legs hung from the mic stand
Silver jewellery fell to the floor
An arm was on the curtain and a shoe was in the door…
Blood already lay on the floor
Colonies had risen, been defeated
Jesus, Mohammed, defied
The board of Idolatry paused
In a reign of flames
carbon soaked atoms
Every stall burning off
Oil backsheesh
splitting and shitting the world
into lazy divides
Social media lockdown
Connections finished
Data cached
For chips
In heads
To help you remember
Rebels sold hashish cookies
spiked with death
To Putin
Old money Crusaders
Sanctioned chocolate
city waders
Patented cures,
for spells bound by
Against lizards
Scales down
Never swept up after
Arrows of judgement shot from the clouds
Held in Boston and Oxford
The vloggers and bloggers
Styled as Refugees in burkhas
bribed mouths
pouting in
sanitised mud cleanser faces
They’re cool – called the magazines
In exchange for dough
And artists
Indexed superstructure
Or bombed
Red card
I’m Calling it:
We fund
this rescheme as
brand Fans
crazy and stupid
As Fran Leibovitz said:
the best died
And still, the fete of perversity
will not give in to terror:
Workers march
Loafers lunch
Cake thrown
Roll up
Roll up
Only show on earth.
