LIFE IN THE DEGENERATE WEST

On a blue beach
A white spider
Watches a mouth do television.
Offensive to reason
The wet carrots
Breach through reality to be eaten.

In the politically incorrect bathroom
The candle
Supervises the dissection of the whale.

In the kindergarten's shooting galleries
Women wet with intensities
Dance to the tune of motorized popcorn,
Their lipstick melting, their string
Unwinding slowly.

They have no whips, so default
To discretionary time.
Sit long hours sunbathing,
Relaxed in damp cars,
Hips massaged by perfume,
Frothing.

Their children are permitted ten fingers
And the results
Are predictable.

Author's note: in this poem the dark fascist, Authelgroger, ascetic Enforcer of Disciplines and lord of the acid tanks, imagines life in the degenerate West, in the land of candyfloss ethics and lubricated standards. As he meditates, heretics roast slowly over hot charcoal. Roast silently, because they are gagged with chains.
