The Void

“Man would rather have the void as his purpose than be void of purpose.”
– Nietzsche

the void
it can be difficult to imagine a world without the bullshit
but this is done by cruel design by a few to benefit a few
the busy work of survival given from pre-kindergarten to retirement
is a tactic used to keep us busy while they mine the ore
of imagination from deep inside us
and rob us of the wealth of possibilites
securing the creativity that mends the bad leg
that the future has been hobbling in on
in a vault where the scheme is
to monetize love compassion and empathy
so they can be devalued in the marketplace of ideals
in favor of crowning greed and avarice as virtues

jesus christ turned over the tables
of these money changers in the temple
what other way is there to upend an upside down world
what other way is there to define ourselves
against the occupation of this void
other than by the boldness of our opposition to it
we can’t avoid the risk without validating our own destruction
on someone else’s terms
the front line has us surrounded
it forced god to be a man
so we define ourselves in the embrace of these slim odds
clutch this death by the throat and look it in the eye
to return this fear to its origin
