A New God

When did it become about bowing to a god

forged in the fires of our greed

corrupt and consumed

with our need for bigger, better, more

than anyone else we know.

When did it become about making money

upon the backs of innocents

collateral damage, that 80% 

never should have happened

when the school exploded.

Children dead and mothers cry

unheard, ignored, left to bleat.

Ewes without lambs. 

Rams without ewes.

Money and pain, 

greed and need.

No, greed and want

consumerism is the new God

bow to this entity worshipped by all.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
