recalled irony

pattern dictates hazard overblown fortress from
the world’s archive distinct posterior realms are
portrayed insolent rich slutted on the poor’s belly
a rook bird stealing fish from the baby penguin

how to starve quietly making no waves for fear
of angering the beast astride your very being in
the holy wears and splinters hacked by soldiers
in dirty bestial forces riding the silent streets at

wherever pleasure’s irony details ironic monster
in the sleeted corn row upon row the empty door
the crowded future fat rich slobs misunderstand
the very name of beatitude on the silent waters
