Evil Rising

It rises
like poison ivy
up walls of humanity

Evil is stalking
our minds
and our sanity

We must become one
to stop the evil rising
join together as one nation

    A lovely penning indeed. Because of our mean and selfish approach towards the society EVIL is raising it's head.We all have to stand unitedly against it to save ourselves only.

    And the Evil is many things...Things we assumed were good: cars, petroleum, making a great deal of money, spawning loads of children, Sunday drives, salty fries, fat & sugar & the lies we fashion about the creation... (Report) Reply

While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
