Failure Unreconciled - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Horizons level inhibited.
Self-worth unrecognized
dissipates with dream-mist.

Non-achievement condemns
accusations unbearable burden.

Ambition envisioned
unattained defines limits.

Leisure
career
pleasure.

Activities
locked
in variable

predictable
cyclic
interaction.

Future conversant
frustrated endeavour.

Jehovah beg-pardon
do I bore omnipotent you?

As much as your hedonistic
materialistic cannibalistic.
Dismal oppressive contested.
Dirt world bores opossum I!

Late twentieth century.
Neo-liberal policy.
An escalating booming.
Greed is good mentality.

An every male female
for himself herself.
Coveting crave culture.

God take tender
gauge measure troweled pity;
send mediating madman
to put liberating bullet!

Through rotten
insupportable incompatible;
fruitless worthless

‘I had a dream’
fever dream exploiting time.
Masters of War

target kill charismatic
peacemakers who lead populace
civil rights movements.

Before awhirling
insurrection
warped world

leaves
insurgent psychic
peacemaker stark dead.

Stark victim
fleeced exploited
like a lark.


A caged
hollow ruin
insane.

Is no threat
to gulf war mongers
feasting on war profit.

A new world order
made to measure wars
fought in foreign other

subjugated countries.


Weapons of mass destruction...
war on terror is pulp fiction...
propaganda; legitimizing resources;

coveted; seized grasped controlled;
exploited; oiling war industry...
promotion manufacture sales production!
