Marketing to babes

Revolutions come with marketing. Hits per page per minute posters.
Jesus lives
On a cross on a necklace.
On TV.
Purchase freedom by the unit
For return on investment.
Buy to sell and sell to live.
There’s a war with
Lives on the line.
It’s that fucking serious.
Family, friends, trust are premium,
Quality all-natural products.

I was a boy on a bike
Pushing gears you built
For some aimless babe.
Paper covers rock. And steel.
And makes pretty girls kiss
Driven, gnarled men.
I was jumping the slope
And skidding to a stop.
Never knowing our possibilities.
Our shared space. Our distance.

Fly a plane into a building.
Eat creamy delicious.
Swallow anti-coagulates.
Sleep child sleep.
But pray to The Necklace.
And pledge allegiance
To a symbol that stands
For something. Anything.
