Perpetual Concussions by Bradley Mason Hamlin

 

Seems to me
if you were
the grand controllers
of this planet’s
population

the easiest way
to control the masses
is to divide them
into warring factions

via the media
and button-pushed
politics

like
two football teams
smashing into
each other
with relentless
and constant
brute force

and
as we give
one another
perpetual concussions
the shadow
people

laugh
and move
the chess pieces.
