In Wild Wind Poem by Josey Alfred

In Wild Wind

Rating: 5.0

Culture, swept away now with wind
Or maybe slipped into culprits hands.
Such is the trend in this tainted land,
Hail our sociopolitical, systems unwound.

No infant, girl or grand ma, in our land,
Is safe in daylight, Oh! Cruel brigands,
We proclaim that we are in a safe land
Where cast, sex or religion, all well blend.

Now in this land, jungle laws abound,
And humanity besieged by selfish hounds.
To enforce bigoted culture, blind!
By poachers of human right now abound.

The rules and constitutional, safeguards ends,
When implementing it's provisions to find,
A solution to undo criminal practice to end,
Is a legend buried deep in soiled ground.

Now we are nation unable to amend,
Nor able to defend, the weak or blind,
To give solace to an infant bound
By the bandits ruthless hands.

'Now in this land, jungle laws abound, And humanity besieged by selfish hounds'................................ How true is the situation! Even in broad day light people are not hesitant to do the atrocities once they dared to commit only under the cover of darkness! We do not realize that with the ebbing values, the sand under our feet also is ebbing away! A powerful write!

How very sad, many people, instead of seeking God, they are getting themselves into deeper sin!
