A man steps on the moon
Almost 50 years later
He steps in mayhem

His trousers wrinkled
From defeat

His necktie ruined
From hanging intruders

His shirt speckled
With the blood of spectators

– Who is this man?
– Why does he wreak havoc so recklessly?
He is coated with the film
Of psychotropic drugs

His decisions not his own
His mind inundated
With televised violence

He breathes poison
Spouts venom

He has become a snake
In the looking glass
Revolted by his own image

Welcome 21st Century zombie
