Howler monkeys

The howler monkeys scream
tension builds
blowing apart at the seams
bread and circuses
a sense of entitlement
chattering and pounding
slinging and flinging
like a bunch of babies
wah wah wah all day long
everybody's a target
an example to be made
something instead of somebody
so much to do
so few heartbeats
it would be funny
from a distance
from a longer timeline view
but it's easier to bitch about the old
than find something new
it's a planet full of monkeys
with too many loose screws

"Painting and fucking a lot are not compatible; it weakens the brain,"
