Engineering Failures

the downtrodden and beat
the least literate
run their fingers
over hieroglyphs
twisted tongue tales
of a false idol
chiseled on tablets
devoid of stone

self-proclaimed deity
suffering from oxygen deprivation
your Babel dreams
tumble downward
and you stumble
onward, outward, inward
through the ruble

while outdated
bubble gum wisdoms
pretending to be relevant
walk aimlessly
through the throngs
of incoherent passersby
scattered to the four corners
of your imagination
