as and with very warlike people
with a veneer (thin coating) of customs
helping us not be killed or tortured
for profit or pleasure
Some of us have already lost lives here ~
yet live to tell the tale.
They say cats have nine lives~
another term for orgasm is "the small death".
There are defining moments when eras and epochs are reborn
Democracy dies with false elections and wars
Capitalism dies with a ravaged Earth
both ideals are reborn
in the digital wasteland they helped create
while their carcasses are collected
by Nets and Webs
