A Response To the King Crimson Song 21st Century Schizoid Man From a 21st century Schizoid Man In Haiku Form

The King Crimson song "21st Century Schizoid Man" is purportedly about American Vice President Spiro Agnew and the Vietnam War. It comes from the album In the Court of the Crimson King, and was written by band member Peter Sinfield. Here are the lyrics...


Cat's foot, iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoia's poison door
Twenty-first century schizoid man

Blood rack, barbed wire
Politician's funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty-first century schizoid man

Death seed, blind man's greed
Poets starving, children bleed
Nothing he's got he really needs
Twenty-first century schizoid man
