Failure to Pay

Gaze
ever upwards
eyes slitted
remorse
given so much time
given so much energy
forgiven
time 
and again
only ever
burst into conflagration.
I am broken.
There is nothing more 
the well
this well
untapped 
drained
vile men
lands once fertile
shattered
cracked 
dirt filters through the air
no more….. 
no more can I take
pollution
deforestation
man’s folly
raping 
over and over 
believing 
never shall the piper be paid.
Night has fallen
moonlight
eyes peering 
water 
calamity is coming
my view
one last loving look
once abundant terrain
rock hard
sustaining life no more
as behind 
deafening crescendo
waves building 
surging
what once was
is no more.

Flight of Conspiracy

Nightmares
Bleak landscape
Black
Grey shadows
Chilling howl
Fear
Look back
Scan forward
Taste of copper
Tinged air
Fate
Fabricator of ill
Greedy fingers pluck
Raping fertile land
Plundering virgin waters
Massacring exotics
A game
A sickening fact
Smiles of glee
Sneers
Taunts
Rattle from lips
Parched dry
From lack of harmony
Lack of morality
Lack of decency
Lack of humanity
High above
Soaring on Currents
Blackening the sky
Shredding daylight
Emergence of twilight
Raucous kraa’s 
Almost like laughter
Dancing along the edge of hearing
Whispering in ears
Promises given
Vows broken
Death is coming
Flying on ebon wings.
