A Poem by henry 7. reneau, jr.

bokanovsky's concerto in proletariat minor

in a brave new world
sheep will slaughter while attached at the hip
cell-phone drones to internet
closure to tough love
disenchantment to narcotraficantes
h.i.v/aids to cyber porn

in a brave new world
status brands and billboard clothes
will indoctrinate
the self-made man/woman/child
into "new world order" patented materialism

in a brave new world
political correct
will candy-coat the grain of truth
reassuring clones
confident in their cubicle-d complacency

in a brave new world
i'm a dead man walkin'

henry 7. reneau, jr. writes words in fire to wake the world ablaze & illuminated by courage that empathizes with all the awful moments:  a freight train bearing down with warning that blazes from the heart, like a chambered bullet exploding inadvertently.
