admiring the autocratic 80’s Angel of Death
nuke-tipped missiles providing phallic imagery
mindlessly drumming, completes the emasculation process
(cars whiz by full of Rocky Flats workers,
who today will fashion yet another
gleaming, growing, glistening monster)
who among the rootless, servile masses
would dare to join in such futile protest?
who, instead of proper worship
at the altar of insane progress,
would seek somehow to cast down
the golden calf of annihilation?
