Untitled Poem of the Day #26

Crimson tides
blood running through the streets
sacrifice
pray to god
that the heavens shall hold
evil will not win
redemption is nigh.
Already won
evil wears the mask….. 
businessman
entrepreneur
liar
thief
despot
tsar
megalomaniac
tyrant…..
the list
the names
written in the annals of history
destined to be repeated
as each one escalates
propaganda to fill the minds
of those looking for
a reason to blame
to fault
all others unlike themselves
for their desire to roost on the sidelines
price paid
dues given
without their so much as lifting a finger.
bold
scarce
these men
these women
would kill this world
remade in their images.
Blasphemy!
Placing their wants
their demands
their belief
their entitlement to air
forgetting…..
there are those who watch
who wait
who will take them down
with nothing more
than cracked codes
their very own egos
misused powers
a rising of people ready 
able
wanting
to make the world better.

Thought #9

Thinking you have control over anything is an illusion. Nothing is concrete but fluid for it is determined by your own actions and reactions to any given situation.
