FILTH AMBITIOUS

We’re nursing neglect
…in a growing grind
We’re activating ails
…to an attacking action
We’re breaking bonds
…of a sealed safety
We’re losing largely
…in a beckoning benefit
We’re Frankenstein Monsters!

II
We eat from the earth
…bathing its waters from birth
We clothe from its closety-forest
…adorning us with their hidden adorables
We soothe our skins
…from the blood of its statics
Yet stain its saintliness
…with our flowing filth
We’re Frankenstein Monsters!

III
Instead of building well welled pots
…at our heavy human spots
We gateless our gutters
…to labour our litters
Ripping our rivers
…with contemptuous contamination
Sourly scenting operating offices
…to suffocatingly slap us with stench
Aren’t we Frankenstein Monsters?

IV
The two, zero, one, five Circle cinema
…did not drum-in the daunting drama
The many mournings
…have not moved the mountains of mistakes
Still, organic seeps through electronics
…beastially bestfriended by plastics
Loitering lazily
…on our flies complaining compounds
Grossly greeting guests
Why are we always waiting
…for cholera clusters
To ask aid
…from embarrassing embers?
Aren’t we Frankenstein Monsters?

V
Why aren’t we filth ambitious
…when dum dooms our dressing?
Why aren’t we filth ambitious
…when harm hurts from heaping?
Why aren’t we filth ambitious
…when gains grin for our getting?
We’re wreckers of our wins
…snailing our swoops
…foxing our failures
…fermenting our flops
To stink as sellouts
…to our seeking scouts
