Jackals of All Trades Masters of None by Charles Joseph


To some it is the dawn of a new age
a time to pilfer what’s already been pilfered
an opportunity to fill up the old war chest
while we fight amongst ourselves
confused, bewildered, and afraid.

It is a tactic well used throughout history
and they know this better than you and I
because they were raised to believe
that Armageddon is their birthright
and although there is no X penciled in
on their Gregorian calendars—

they know their ATOMIC-GOD looms
but they are not afraid of it
because they created it
just in case the meek decide
that it is finally time
to inherit the earth.
