A New Set - Poem by shimon weinroth

lately many symbols seem to melt, wilt and decline
is it something in our food,
something in the air that dulls, a hovering cloud,
energy from the past, loss of faith, forsaken hope

and a dozen other reasons
is it love and empathy shed
a ballooon deflated
have apathy and satire taken over the libido

emotions ruled by logic
blinded the eyes of memory
other forces have replaced symbols
telling us what and how to do

in ball parks and stadiums packed
festivals, mass gatherings thrive, jive
sing and dance a new tune
symbols of the past put to rest

new ones appear like mushrooms in the rain
