pulling together…

pulling together

when the winds died down
sailors who manned the ship’s sails 
during the night’s storm
now rest alone on calm seas
forgetting how they survived

selective kindness…

selective kindness

when the misery
we see
is in eyes
that look
like
ours
our hearts
open up
and
we hear
there
but
for the grace of
that’s
when we
offer up
a small portion
of
self-pity
to another
such
self-centered behavior
no doubt
feels
good for a while
but
like
a child’s
out of sight
out
of mind
stage of development
the misery
is soon
forgotten

law of cruelty…

zealots

hate clings to our souls
refusing to be dislodged
prayers relieve the pain
but it still remains inside
it’s existence’s parasite

 

 

just some old news…

just some old news

breaking news
cold
blooded murder
under
confusion’s cover
government sanctioned
hate crime
just
another
reporter’s assassination
to
be
added to
the
weekly homicide
statistics
these data
will be collated
and
used to prepare
a monthly report
names
family affiliations
and
life history
of
victims
will be stripped away
for
the sake
of
economy
final results
will be
used
for
an annual report
initial analysis suggests
that
each death
has eroded
freedom
and
democracy
bringing
each
to the brink
of
extinction
when
the final report
is approved
by
committee
a summary
will be printed
and
distributed
to
concerned parties
or
converted to
a digital format
breaking news
citizens
are outraged
with
increases
in
the cost
of
living
