Show Stopper

 
(for Roopa )

 
When they
press that
shiny button
jump start
the fiery show

 
Press that shiny
button
and make the
living planet
blow
 
Press that shiny
button
so even the
drained come
aglow

In sullen
stupefaction
devoid conscious
action
 
*
 
Accountants will account

The Modernist Machine
just will not stop
and none shall
halt to hear
The Dread Package
drop

 
Only children
will pause
and look up
at the sky
 
Crying
all too plaintive
but why
o but why?
 
Hush hush
children
do not be
deterred
 
The Show
must go
on
though it
may seem
absurd
 
Until you
and I
and every
thing
under the sun
 
Until you
and I
and every
thing

 
ALL are Undone
