We have seen the soldiers marching

And have heard all the cannons roar

In the distance, rockets launching

There in the middle of this war

To find ourselves thus encompassed

In a battle we cannot win

Where the madness is upon us

And the world’s drowning in chagrin !

Who hears the sound of running feet

Our world reverberates defeat

While strangers view the failing trend

When will this anger ever end ?

How tired have we all become

With vision clear to only some ?

My passion washes down the drain

Promising no, not e’er again

The silence closes in once more

Too soon our Lord may bar the door !

 

THE COST ( 2015 ) 2015/12/13

The serpent slithers on the ground

And waits in crevises around

Sometimes he slips his skin aside

To cloak his strike or presence hide.

Oh evil spirit, this we know

Who spoke to Eve so long ago

For it was he inspired the pair

To disregard God’s warning there.

And thus man’s paradise was lost

There is no way to count the cost !

The sky is clear the sun so bright

A welcome change and sheer delight

The wind caresses all the trees

There’s salted breath upon the leaves

The water washes on the shores

The river hums the ocean roars.

Think back to times long gone away

When stalwart ships entered the bay

Folks came with baggage sparse and lean

Unknowing what the trip would mean

To greet this new world of their dreams

This foreign land where freedom gleam’d.

For most it was a great success

Each garnered something to possess

Those lessons learned seem long forgot

Replaced by greed and unctuous rot

Our government the gross suspect

Has changed our land by forced neglect !

 

OBSCENE ? ( 2015 ) 2015/06/02

Oh how this world has changed since I

Was young and only stood knee high

The universe has grown much more

So many went there to explore.

We’ve learned how to communicate

With sound and vision up-to-date

Our satellites now fill the skies

All are results of enterprise.

Midst all the challenges we face

Like limbs and organs to replace

With all the changes we have seen

Has faith become an act obscene ?

 

GODLESS ( 2014 ) 2014/08/21

The days are charged with fiery speech

But soon we shall an ending reach

What do we need that can’t be sought

With weakness and our wealth be bought ?

The time for courage has emerged

Though we are bankrupt and submerged,

Our ruling class is self-embraced

And few are left without disgrace !

So this is how our story ends

There’s little left, not even friends !

 

CALLOUS ( 2014 ) 2014/07/30

Where sounds of silence fill the air

And winds of time do memory spare

The depth of emptiness will stare

Into a crowd that does not care !
