Disturbing The Peace


Executives of multi-billion dollar oil
and/or wall street organizations, send a multitude to boil,
in the hopes to defeat a propaganda-driven foe to foil;
they have plenty more possible antagonists to tame,
but those overseas enemies have become to blame.
Yet, simultaneously, they are friends of the very same
elite. Viral spreading terrorist threats and chaos, coil
in daunting fear via telecommunications in hopes to toil
the populations national security and safety buried under soil.
Ultimately, the governing superpowers - spearheading
global empires - heads of state are warmongering -
greedily collecting money, ignoring their people dying
on the home front and globally.
Sitting on-top-of-the-world, all high and mighty,
upon their golden thrones, while grandly
well-concealing plentiful of incriminating
closet-kept bones; playing games, risk-taking
choices that turn for the worst due to poor decision-making.
All this torment for the always precious Black Gold.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
