The State of the World

Document

The smell of rotten chocolate


And disheartened apricots


Flourish in the humid climate


Amidst angry typewriters


And unsatisfied washing machine instructions.


 


In France, a Bosnian dictionary salesman


Is drinking lime juice at a wine tasting


And in Japan, patriotic guinea pigs


Waving the Argentinian flag


Are debating on the revolt 


Of mandarins and tangerines


Against the tyrannical grapefruit.


Look at the state of the world!


 


Mammoths and taxi cabs 


Walk side by side,


And cuboid-shaped basketballs


Are winning a lawsuit against


Apple-core flavoured calculators


For, copyright infringement for all reasons.


 


Misanthropic manatees took over


The film industry a few years back, 


And turned a mass-murdering Elvis impersonator


Into a seven-time Oscar winner


And a pervy Peruvian pornographer


Sold a model of a nine-foot cock


For twelve million dollars, 


To a recently-bereaved platypus.


Look at the state of the world!


 


Amidst all the shitstorms,


The Depressed manatees,


And the citrus wars,


A man wakes up,


Takes a walk around the neighbourhood,


Surveying his bizarre surroundings


Before saying to himself


"What the fuck happened here?"
