[ Stephen King inspired ] Different Day Same Shit

happens to the best of us
  
Bucko, while the rest of the world
is driving their Chevrolets  
shopping at Wal-Mart and  
watching Friends on TV  
boarding trains of thought  
with their own carry on baggage  
oblivious of the circumstances  
you struggle to escape -  
   
nothing and I mean  
NOTHING is allowed in or out    
through the perimeter  
   
Give it up  
call it quits  
hands in the airspace;  
you're surrounded  
   
Sky's no longer the limit -  
it's OFF LIMITS!  
   
Absolutely no idealistic notions  
will be taking off or intuition    
is coming in for a landing -  
they're as good as grounded  
   
In fact, anything from points of  
origin considered unknown  
is unconventional and therefore  
deemed unsafe; fresh thought    
brought to a grinding halt  
   
as all ideas are classified    
alien  
   
That Memory Warehouse with  
its nostalgia you're so fond of?    
   
What dreams there were  
are now in Lockdown  
   
And what dreams may come?  
   
Caught in the neural network  
of victimhood, self pity, doubt;  
never getting out alive  
   
wiped off the face of your    
Armpit, Kentucky, USA, Earth  
by the Boys in Blue with their  
Black Helicopters
