Battle to the Death over Groceries and Toys


Days, a few days i knew
Man with son, son with dad
I saw a new South
No man knew the law
No man knew morality
I said they have to see
They all closed their eyes
Tightly closed eyes, clenched fists, angered
Then, hand to one, hand to all, knitted green fabric of envy
Greener fabric of greed
They battled to the death over groceries and toys
Do we know what they cannot? Evolve or devolve?
I say one and the same chance
Every filled prison a mosaic of death and the free men rejoice
Days, a few days i knew
I am a sense, I am a new man at 20, i know plenty
One man knew morality
Only one
No man knew the law
The mystery has been completely solved
I say ego, I say je suis
I say rebirth, do no harm
I say lend an arm
They battled to the death over groceries and toys

    Yeah! I tend to agree that thisis not an easy thing to read, nor is it quite easy to understand. I suppose I know what you are saying, but I am not sure. More
    clarity is definitely needed.

    Beau, I agree with Tai about the splendid title. Also the content is very strong. I would find the poem easier to read if you broke it up into stanzas, but you communicate your message loud and clear. Warmly, Alison (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
