Treasure Island

Uloia Norris Moore

(Day's of The Past, Present, Future. / Southern United States)

Flood Gate


In the past such was ignored
no more can such be done

I live on American soil
even here yes they
do toil

Frankly speaking
of thieves
I speak nought
recession is
coming like it
or nought

Doomsayer negative thinking
how hard when numbers
are crunched in
honest forth right manner

Innovative new thinking
instead of the shirking

The poisonous waste land
we leave our children

I shudder at the thought
We owe to them at least
the tools education real
wisdom to show them
the path the way out

POSION OUR CHILDREN NO MORE
