Deviants

Rating: 5.0

In just one respect they tend to deviate.
In other ways they earnestly collaborate,
conform depressingly.
The same is true of dissidents and poets.

Almost every day I feel that I'm
the only person who's awake,
while other people are sleepwalking
the world to nightmare:
the long, bad time for poetry

now born of its dung.

Making such a good point is one thing - making it this well earns you a 10 from me and a lot of respect too. Hugs Anna xxx

I hear you Anthony and we all hear each other but we seem to like war. I hate it but the majority of us seem to enjoy inflicting pain. I liked this poem alot mate stay awake we still have a slim chance of saving this stupid collective we own. Séamus
