The Dice Have Been Thrown

The dice have been thrown
“America’s new war”
declares CNN
pushes CNN
as our fragile, stupid species
and neglected, floating planet
faces deadly extinction
people in Manhattan
don’t really seem to realize
or don’t really want to admit
just how fucked we are
as they bounce around
from bar to bar to bar
on a cool, September eve
Friday night alcohol
flows easily and fast
as I listen to
Jet fighters circling above
something you never hear
in the skies over New York
something too many other
countries know too well
