Is It Intentional?


They're people tired of hoping,
And told to cope.
They're people tired of moping,
And duped like dopes.
They're people tired of holding,
Onto a rope...
And,
Slipping from their grip.

They're people tired of hoping,
And told to cope.
They're people tired of moping,
And duped like dopes.
They're people tired of holding,
Onto a rope...
And,
Slipping from their grip.

Is it just the politics,
Of it.
Where are all the benefits,
Gone missing.
Is it just the foolishness,
That exists.
With a change that remains the same.

Is it just the politics,
Of it.
Where are all the benefits,
Gone missing.
Is it just the foolishness,
That exists.
With a change that remains the same.

Mental conflicts,
The people are feeding.
On mental conflicts,
People feed.
These mental conflicts,
The people are feeding...
With an obviousness increased.

Is it intentional?
These conflicts.
Is it an intentional,
Increase.
Is it intentional?
These conflicts.
Is it an intentional,
Increase.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
