paper cuts…side effects

paper cuts…side effects
you beg for death but death will not oblige
you will suffer unspeakable indignities
the pains and agonies never subside
only a few sidestep and then commit suicide
paper cuts…side effects
“Abba Abba why have you forsaken us”
the field is ripe…with the heady scent of melon
“Oh yes” the voice replies, “you are one of many
an experiment you exceeded what was planned”
paper cuts…side effects
a threat to the randomness of order
you should have all died en mass
the man slayer, so slipshod…shoddiness a trademark
more a gamer the gamesman playing…what a fool
paper cuts…side effects
nothing to look forward to…except
reflecting on the memories if you can remember
the field was ripe…so heady with the scent of melons
in the breeze it stirs the spirit life smells of earth
paper cuts…side effects
curled and torn yellowed with age of millennia
the paper plans tinged edge traces of DNA
side marked in the notes, “Archetype flawed
full risk of failure…experiment…FAILED”
paper cuts…side effects
the field ripening…heady with the smells of melons
a cruel juxtapose might as well be excrement
the worker shapes and finishes another
marking it “Archetype exact replica full risk of failure…experiment”
paper cuts…side effects
time passes like an eternity, so subjective
you beg for death but death will not oblige
side marked in the notes, “Archetype flawed
full risk of failure…experiment…FAILED”
paper cuts…side effects
blink blinking blinks time…time to replicate
the worker shapes and finishes another one
mutters “full risk of failure…experiment…flawed
…you should have all died en mass"
paper cuts…side effects

Description:
“Let us make man in our image”…has a ring about it…and there are legends of other beginnings of humankind…and of course some think humankind evolved but from where and then why…?…ever wonder why male and female are needed to procreate…?…why not one gender only…?…what if let’s say there was a creator…?…and why does humankind suffer the aging process and then die…?…why are some humans for lack of a better word…evil…and some insane in their evilness…?…what if, “Archetype flawed…full risk of failure…experiment…FAILED” is in our DNA…and just suppose there are others elsewhere…?

From the journal of “Observations from the Six Sided Box” by Paco Diego Rodrigo non Sequitur, notes written in ink, to watch out for the trap door while passing through the current reality, no rewrites, life sucks. You must read carefully between the lines, however do not read the messages from Doctor Fortune Cookies’ epigrams written in invisible ink, happy talk, the lotto numbers are all winners, play them, you will be a winner too. And yes Karma is without a doubt a bitch, with two jaws of rusted nails ready to chew you up and then spit what’s left of you out, the bits and pieces old and chewed each bite a tattoo of being screwed.
