We are the Poets.
Lower your tablets and surrender your commandments.
We will add your hyperboles and religious oxymorons to our own.
Your beliefs will adapt to service us.
Resistance is futile
Seven thoughts deep
Eight thoughts wide
No, that’s not a square thought

What a waste, he sighed
What a waste
We said ‘no’ a thousand times
yet you will not listen
We said ‘yes’ a million times
yet you do not care
We listened limitlessly
yet you feel unheard
We explained everything
yet you know nothing
Maybe it’s my mistake, she said
I shouldn’t have chosen in vitro furbilisation
(Probably my first slightly SciFi poem)
