Petri Dish World by James Dennis Casey IV​

Petri Dish World

Living under a microscope
In a petri dish world
Full of human music blues and
Dirty Harry amoebas
That vengefully destroy
All rational thought

Spinning tales of the stoned
From can to can’t
And basket case lies
About reflections
Of a floating world

We’re all the stars
Of our own movies
Eating frustration sandwiches
Made of the great
American death rattle
That kill all the extras
With untold truths

Stuck here
Somewhere over the rainbow
In a mad scientist’s laboratory
The three futures
That could have been
Have come and gone
Down the guilt party waterslide
And Google is our new God
