Untitled Poem #7

Talk talk talk
circle around the truth
stories told
lies believed 
until they become a part of history.
Since time in memoriam
men have written
changing them to make their wrongs
their ills
their evils
appear to be sane
Steamroll over anyone
who disagrees
disputes the facts
of men
who believe they are
saving a world
they themselves have destroyed.
Earth trembles
lave explodes
mountains fall at their feet.
Oceans are polluted
spreading disease
eradicating species
while searching for the almighty dollar.
A time will come
people will rise
the privileges given
to these obsolete dinosaurs
money money money.
As heathens of times passed
burned at the stake
who demanded more
services from those who were in charge
so too shall great men fall
while the world laughs at their fate.
November 17/18

This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
