Confessions of A Reluctant Spy
GANGSTA GENERAL X
I am a warrior poet doing op's
for a vast army hidden
in the bunker of obscurity;
cover lives so meek and mild,
they would never be suspected of having
an AK47 buried in the garage.
Life and death in my hands every damn day.
Every mistake a bloody mess,
assassins for all the sides seem everywhere.
I am confused by the NEED TO KNOW policies of both God and man.
In my cover life
I am surrounded by neutered's
who take a smug pride in being slaves.
My enemies tried to defeat me without martyring my flesh,
left me bloody and broke and half mad . . .
silently contenting myself with the knowledge
I would one day issue their death sentences.
The oligarchies media tries to control the narrative
of the revolution,
yet I lived to write
for the unmarked mass graves
that took our comrades
without so much as a news story about missing college kids.
Never meant to have this bloody life.
Never wanted anything more than a simple love,
They stole me from my life,
brought out the wrath
created a war hardened beast
who they could no longer control.
I have been mistaken for many things
since the revolution began
my enemies have tried to demonize me
for challenging an oligarchy
stealing every last drop of oil and . . . on the planet:
some saw me only as a mirror,
happens when the media,
can take a split second of a life
and say it rep's all the other years.
I am enough Nietzschean enough
to allow neither pain nor praise
any effect on the one who stands always in solitude,
surrounded by discarded by the masks
I wear for all others;
I see fresh blood on a monstrous visage glistening in the light,
another a benign reflection
of my smile
for a child.
