What Else?

*****

 

Now that our “defunct” space program
Has morphed into the Dark Fleet

Now that the stripes in our skies
Are admittedly composed of chemicals

Now that the Pope
Has been up for arrest

Now that our solar observatories
Were summarily shut down

Now that our “free press” is
No longer free in Antarctica

Now that no private or public American camera
Can legally film outside Earth’s atmosphere

Now that the technology to alter human mood
Is exposed as elementary

Now that our Worldwide Web Masters
Have been convicted of spying

On
Us

Where are those who sniggered
At we “conspiracy theorists”?

Why are they not back here
Apologizing

And
Asking

“What
Else…?”
