    Disposable Killing Machines R US

    by BAR poet-in-residence Raymond Nat Turner

     

    12, 23, 32, 300, 3,000;

    Long gun, handgun, back

    Pack, Ryder rental truck;

    Shopping mall, movie-theater,

    Naval facility, army base—

    A thousand to choose from—

    D.C., VA, CT, CO, CA, Texas;

    Aaron, Adam, James, Timothy,

    Nidal, disposable killing machines…

     

    Nightmares looped over

    Murder manuals memorized,

    Looped over recorded command voices,

    Looped over clanging pots and pans

    Piped through vents, driving

    Pharma’s sleep deprivation

    Psychotropic drug playthings mad!

     

    Disposable killing machines

    Sometime short-circuit, suffer

    Insomnia, anxiety, depression

    Hurting themselves with

    Programming for hurting

    “Bug splat,” “sand nigger” others

     

    The wakeful sleep of the 1% is

    Haunted by long shadows of

    Conscious soldiers, progeny

    Of militant mass movements —

    Avatars of Aaron Alexis,

    Christopher Dorner, Timothy

    McVey and other disposable

    Killing machines, morphing

    Into Marilyn Buck, Geronimo

    Ji-Jaga, John Brown action-

    Figures, armed with semi-

    Automatic Marxist analysis,

    Weapon of mass instruction,

    Trained to “drain the swamp”

    Of its sulfur stench and war

    Criminal curriculum, gassing minds…
