Ranch Poem – “We Want to Wonder ‘Why?'”

11/2/09

We Want to Wonder “Why?”

well, we want to wonder “why?”
why lights burn out in minds and in the sky
why some of our love pours and some runs dry
why success or failure outweighs the try
why some dames eat orchids and men crave guys
why we follow socialists, capitalists, and Bear-oh my
why pot remains criminal but poisoned tobacco is a legal buy
why financial giants, Populist despots and Dick love to watch their comrades die
why it’s harder to be authentic then it is to be sly
why it takes years of good men to slow down a government’s lies
why greed and fear toss ice caps into furnaces to fry
why “it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s goodbye”
why bright lights, glowing sticks, and large breasts catch our spinning eyes
why they broke their backs lifting Moloch to Heaven on high
why some human beings don’t have 20dozen reasons to want to survive
why pharmacies can cure and cause us to cry
why all therapy isn’t musical-vibrant and Live
