Obsessive Surfer*

 
Feverish in wedding lace
Obsessive browsing brings
Up the nude, white and bleak
Objects, borderline depressive
From anal to vegetable and
Bongs to zealous over zits.

It's all flying saucer out-there
A grappling hook for your fancy
And a hung over computer
To boot, if it can, overrun with
Zestful bikini buddies, no 
Two surfers in the same suit.

The world is a mirror of what
We've become, beyond our
Control, heroes in a spin of
Dumb down actions, a look
That bears our thumb prints
All over it, like mom, like earth.

With cold and hot and the
Wormy weather sucking it
Back to the sky, the quake,
The shake and the flood,
The doomsayers will set 
Their dates with alacrity.

The rising and the falling, 
A backward sliding or the
Boom and gloom hunters
All sing a cautionary tune:
The call of the wild keeps on
Sharpening its old harpoon.

The hard lines of the world
Soften into new headlines,
Winds carry new symbols, 
Spring comes to places that
Were unaware there was
Ever a change in the weather.


Though I learn to read the
Minds of distant men, blame
The times for their demise:
It's a pearl handle test of any 
Who dare to hold on tight to
Humanity's palm of the mind.



*Obsessive browsing or surfing is defined as DEPRESSION
