I Hear Them Calling Me

A little poem about how the human race all thinks the same, even in slime-pits of rejects. I'm not saying I'm innocent of group-thought or anything, but the human race is a curious lump of flesh, am I right?

I Hear Them Calling

My childhood was all First World
and shiny,
but don't ever tell me
I never knew maniacs
right from infancy.

I knew the same kind of maniacs
who could have been
warlords in Africa
since before I could
talk.

I knew maniacs
who are the
worst kind of people
your simple American mind
can imagine
since before
I knew
such a hierarchy
existed.

I am privileged enough
to know now
what is wrong
while others
must struggle
within the culture
of their streets
to live
off gutter codes,
but we know
when we finally get shat
into the sewage of the system
who the lowest
of the low is,
and I know
that
intimately
long before
I knew
where it stood
in your slimy
pseudo-institution
of rejects,
so fuck you
and your bullshit codes
because your honor
is static anyway
with your cute
meta-codes.

If I end up
in your hellholes,
kill me if you will
for whatever offense
because I will devour you
simply
for
the threat
I smell
from your beacon.

You all can think
as I can think,
and you can care
about what's there,
but do you
value
your sanity too?

I can hear the rain
on the hollow of
your chest;
empty
of what
once
animated you,

and if the pigs
throw me in
with you
with you,
I will find you,
and make you
make you
make you
make you
wish your existence
could be erased
from time
and space.
