Frenetic movements of phonetic inflection
assail my thoughts upon my reflection
words now negate symbolization
while still trying to purport implications
dictionaries of dust
unmarked and in flux
marks my generation's trepidation
the shock awe and terror
the weaponization of air
uneasy paranoia across the nation
the kings and the chiefs
are nothing but thieves
trust is decaying in crumbling imaginations
restless tur-moil boiling over in skulls
scalds our hope to the point of exasperation
the apathy of antipathy
shades our lives and repels decency and motivation
impervious careers dilute our zeal
while congealing our dread, our woe, our oppression
our hearts melt with the poles
theres nowhere else to go
incarcerated in the confinement of this globe's dilapidation
our souls have been bought
a reconstruction of thought is needed
to bring about a new translation of realization
force fed falsities sanitizing atrocities
the heinousness of humans permitting abominations
too shackled to one point of view
to look past what is in front of you
to see a planet dying and life's dissipation
we're just monkeys, you see
unfit for the responsibility God left us
upon his expiration

In my opinion, rhyme should be a subtle afterthought in a poem. So much an intergral part of the topic and or message, that it is, not so much ignored, but, accepted. I don't think accepted is the word I am looking for, but in any case, you have accomplished this self-imposed requisite masterfully. I have a special spot in my heart for the message you send, as might be evidenced by some of my own poetry, so this one has become a favorite of mine. Well done! And thanks!
