Drugs And The Cheats - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

I put my head
In these hands
of despair as I see
The drugs and the cheats

What kind of man
Wants to see that
on the streets

They take over the town
Selling their brown
Whats it going to take
For someone to bring them down

Maybe it's time
They took their own brown
Then lets see
If they can stand their ground

One way or another
They are leaving this town

    Again another poem taking into account another big evil prevailing in the social order that is drug trafficking. And the remedy lies in,
    'Maybe it's time
    They took their own brown
    Then lets see
    If they can stand their ground

    One way or another
    They are leaving this town '

    Great write.

    People get addicted, I think, to escape reality. The drug pushers abuse that weakness. As long as there are addicts, there'll be sellers. What is 'brown'? It's even more sad, when you have someone in the family who's an addict. Great poem as always... :) (Report)Reply

    Sometimes i feel bad for them, because they just got cheated by the pills...They just want to see blue instead of red, want fly a hope but not run on stones...The pills cheating, for illusion it brings, control mind, addicting and shrinking everything...We need to let them breaking the scene in the air they breathe to the reality it seems..why... i am afraid the pills tell lie, 'attack that criminal for having me' while the criminal is refer to you...the pills are cheating by illusion of creating.._Unwritten Soul (Report)Reply

    Great write! and a great poem..... the drugs and cheats are everywhere in this world, spreading their poison like a communicable disease to people, ,
    Eradicate these worms of satan from this world, ,
    But who'll listen, their veins are already in vain, and,
    Digging theirs grave by themselves.
