Colonial Jesus

The Maenad


The only white culture is white power

Whiteness is younger than black plague or black reign in Great Zimbabwe

But older than ‘the pilgrims,’  ‘freedom,’ or ‘democracy of the Americas’

A made up make belief that We are better than they, Them, those Others enslaved

But we’re white so it’s all okay

Always “God made it this way”


It always comes down to this; what we say, how we pray 

Who knows about but doesn’t pay when we slay


children in schools with robots or robotic minions


Colonial Jesus of Bell Helicopter tells me so

School is where children go to learn the rule of Who Rules

The lessons brought to you by Smith & Wesson,

Raytheon, or Northrop Grumman

Today Colt, yesterday Armalite

Tomorrow Google and Buzzfeed

If they do it bad, when we do it, good.

Dead kids they killed in Ukraine

Dead kids we killed in Libya, Yemen?

The shroud of dead children covers the lies they transmit,


But live and direct, here barely alive

are Ukrainian children surviving this shit

Reduced, digested, redirected and incepted

Heroes and memes for more stupid culture war things

Just keep sitting there in crude suspense

Like rubberneckers at a traffic accident

Here is the truth, but

look away, look away
