An army of idiots


When it is time to laugh, it is time to cry
the theories of love and death and battle
come to dominate the public sphere
and demand all that we have got
and run us all ragged with stories
of theft and lust and trust, broken
it's the dust that gets in the eyes
sometimes
when all else fails to adjust
it is a sign of the times
new Roman
A pax of celebrity and fear
and misguided expectations
from your living room window
you watch
it all go down
