We are the Horseman

I met a man in 1990,
He told me,
“Next thing you know,
They take my thoughts away.
I know what I said,
now I must scream of the overdose
And the lack of mercy killings”
We met again in 1984,
I met Big Brother for the first time

A document was drafted, he said,
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
Its name was,
The First Amendment.

I met a man in 2016,
He told me that Bush did 9/11.
What do I care?
I am not American.

I met a man in 2018,
He told me to fear hate speech legislation.
Why should I?
Do not hate.

I met a man in 2018,
He told me,
Hate Speech 1.PNG
No longer are we allowed to say,
Jews are wack,
Or post nice videos—

Dating Advice: You Wont Hear From Anyone Else!



Okay Facebook, let’s run the social science experiment.
“Catholics are wack!”
I dare not try to test Islam next.
Facebook holds a double standard.
Oh, and by the way, we are all wack.
Wack is too stupid, too ironic a word to be HATE SPEECH.
Facebook, you’re next!

I met a man in 2007,
He told me,
“Novus Ordo Seclorum,” “Annuit Coeptis!”
I told him I don’t know Latin,
He said, “keep an eye on the eye on the dollar bill.”
I don’t have any American dollars.

I met a man in 2007,
He said,
“NATO invaded Yugoslavia to end ethnic cleansing, there was no U.N.
The U.S. invaded Afghanistan after 9/11, there was no U.N.
Saddam Hussein violated seventeen U.N. resolutions
The U.N. was asked to join the war in Iraq
The U.S. invaded, there was no U.N.
Libya bombed a discotheque in Berlin killing Americans, there was no U.N.
And Iran funds Hamas and attacked the U.S. in the seventies, there was no U.N.
Facing war without end, looking into the future, there was no more U.N.”
I said I don’t care,
He said,
“Disengage their minds, sabotage their health
Promote sex, and war, and violence in the kindergartens
Blame the parents and teachers; it’s their fault; “Annuit Coeptis”
Attack the church dynamic, attack the family
Keep the public undisciplined till nothing left is sacred, and
The “have-nots” get hooked and have to go to the “haves” just to cop a fix”

I met a man in my fourth semester,
He was my English professor,
He said,
“Magic Realism came about as a way to publish censored ideas under oppressive, censoring governments.”
He gave me a book.
One Hundred Years of Solitude.
I don’t know what to say about it.

I met a man in 2018,
He said,
Hate Speech 2I said,
“Don’t you guys have a first amendment or something?”
He said,
“That only covers government censorship of the press.”
I said,
“According to CNN, “The $6.3 trillion debt binge: American companies have never owed this much”
And then I sourced it.
He nodded, manically.
“The government owes American corporations a few blind eyes.
The price has been paid.
It is in the billions.
The best way for the new authoritarian
dictators to circumvent American rights
is by circumventing the law.”
I laughed. This man has historically been wrong,
about nearly everything.

So shut your mouth!
Don’t mention the broken promises and lies of hope and change!”
Still I feel nervous,
Because, like Catholics, and all the rest of us,
Jews are wack,
But Facebook won’t let me say it.
Here is a joke from the Tanakh.
1 And when Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and she said unto Jacob: ‘Give me children, or else I die.’ 2 And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel; and he said: ‘Am I in God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?’
Is that allowed?
I don’t know anymore.

I can’t decide,
Is that another conspiracy?
Or is that big brother
In his infancy?

We are the horsemen.

I met a man in 2016,
He was my Communications professor.
He said,
“Before the telegraph,
The news moved at the speed of horsemen.”
I suddenly understood the old saying,
And I ask that you do the same,
Whether you be a citizen, corporation, bureaucracy, or government,
Don’t shoot the messenger.
Even if he is wrong, even if he is the manifestation
Of HATE SPEECH on earth.

Because if our equine friends fall,
If the doors to the technological revolution close,
If our telegraphs are taken away by
The private manufacturers,
Then it will fall
To us

To be horseman.

Daniel Triumph.
