board game…

fragmented promises
lie on the road
yesterday’s despairs
such fine confetti
for a parade
of fools
passing down
narrow cobblestoned alleys
of imagined liberties
to a destination
advertised by
online chatrooms
as the new eden
where free apples
are distributed
by secret police
for the consumption
of weary travellers
on this monopoly board
road to freedom

  1. hm – we used to play monopoly for hours and you can get wrapped up in wanting more and more…and if we’re not careful, the same can happen in real life..and not only to politicians.. tight write charles

  2. Such is the reality, sad and scary that so many of our youth are lured to this road to freedom in search of their imagined liberties thru chatrooms. Beautifully written.
