Contagious Wellness - An Ongoing Awakening

Contagious Wellness

An Ongoing Awakening

Little Jonny developed severe paranoia
and now has a promising career
in military intelligence

Little Jonette was obsessed with spiders
and now has a promising career
as a corporate lawyer

Kowlijke was the playground bully
and spends sixteen hours every day
freedom from corporate junktelling the world how wonderful she is
duck, if you answer back
and she's exhausted
with troubling dreams
but there's alcohol ...
and the Teflon shrug

Ned the Neanderthal seeks out midgets
to exercise power
A fleeting sense of worth
fleeting, fleeing ...
but there's alcohol

In every land
In every town
In every tribe
In all religions
they practice their 'art'
to gather power
collecting subjects
bolstering illusions
trampling the weak
kindness is contagious

Yet we all have a choice
To be awake

conscious empathy
a contagious wellness


consciousness, dreams, freedom, poems, wellbeing, empathy, kindness, meaningful poems
