Say Goodbye Say Goodbye To Dirt Dust Corruption - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Dirt Corruption Clogs
Minds In Indonesia
Dirt Corruption Clogs
Minds Everywhere

only percentages tolerances
acceptances indifference changes
it is only pie slice percentages
intensity of corruption which changes

say goodbye say goodbye
to the dust corruption of Jakarta
say goodbye say goodbye
to the dust corruption of Indonesia

say goodbye say goodbye
to a people who place greed above Allah?
say goodbye say goodbye
to a people who shame Islam exploiting the poor ah?

rot in the weighty robes garments possessions
of their your desired smelt felt heart decadence
while we I consider ponder honour vaulted heights
fly up through heaven's promised revered gates

there is one God
who created heaven earth humanity embrace divinity
realize coveted
wealth rots rusts reject mammon love embrace humanity

there is no God but greed not
God who created heaven earth humanity embrace divinity?
realize coveted wealth rots rusts reject
deceptive capitalistic lures mammon embrace equality humanity!

only degrees
in cultural exploitation practices
differ across laws
legislated applied countries societies

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Split image of the poem 'Dirt Corruption Clogs Minds In Indonesia' by Terence George Craddock.
Written in January 2012 and March 2015 on the 12or13.1.2012&5.3.2015.

This poem was drafted at the same time as I wrote the poems 'Make Paradise Out Of Ashes' 12.1.2012, 'Art Scribbled On An Old Envelope' 12.1.2012 and 'Reverse Racism' 13.1.2012, when I was submitting as Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light) while living in Jakarta Indonesia; but was not finished or put on line for obvious reasons.

Most of the concepts and implications eluded to in these split image poems, really reference class and culture pertaining particularly to socio-economic status and inequality issues, within education and society implementation as comparative perspectives from stratified classes such as professional, managerial, business, office, technical, to blue collar skilled trades, semi-skilled, unskilled and the unwaged. Hungry mouths have a narrower range of ethics opportunities.
