Stop Armageddon


Stupidity

over-flowing our nation, hate over race and
we’re all adjacent

Tension

anger, animosity, attitude built
kkk emerge, many killed

Ops

biggest mistake, hatred
fuel on fire, open death gates

Privation

filled many home, but money comes to the ground which
is home of poor and land of the rich

America, America

Home of the free, Land of the brave,
United, as, one, yet many slaves

Rage

labor in southern state, no pay
in the rivers, ancestors wade.

Misery

disparity, poverty soaks the land
children victimized, never given chance

Alteration

seeds planted, less cotton in the fields
more opportunities, MLK killed

Gullible

lied to, betrayed
back on the walls, no help, no faith

Earthquake

everyone rumbled, cries over looked
pause - civil movement fumble

Depression

bright light darkens, endless battle being fought
don’t give up, peace will be sought

Development

seeds grow, opinions change
plants recognized, change in the game

Oppression

no longer a factor,
but justice served, Thurgood Marshall heard


Novelty

one day shall come.
United, States, of America

UNITED-AS-ONE

    I enjoyed this. Found the presentation quite hypnotic. As it seemed as an army soldiering on. Ty karen (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
