Scorning Horizon's Orderliness Poem by dimitrios galanis

Scorning Horizon's Orderliness

Under Levantine'slights
and fatherland's colours
our laughter was agitating the hush
οf our inactive flaccidness
scorning horizon's orderliness.
At the inaugurations of our sin's idols
we erected on the public fora
our laughing sounded laudatory.

Whenprotesting warning voices
were smiting the air,
our laugh was wearing its mocking mask.

Now that the land is swept
by purificatory storms
breaking into pieces those idols
we were worshipping,
now that the anti-pagan voices
predicting the hell of idolatry pullulated,
now, now
thatthe seed of joy started falling in scarity,

let us educate it
beyond any scorn of any orderliness
to learn first burst out self-sarcastic
so that tomorrow be able to blossom on our lips
as a hope's laughter,
while we will be rearranging
our οld narrow horizons.

When a nation does not count what are its earnings and its expenses, where can the deficits lead the economy, then comes a bitter hour in front of the abyss it is forced to take painful measures to save what can be saved.

I don't understand economics, not on the level of the public business environment, nor on the level of my personal finances (How do you balance a checkbook, really? !) . But I can vividly comprehend this story of reaping what you sow. Your heightened language raises this account far above the level of a TV news report. It has the gravitas of a genuine tragedy, and shouild provide the necessary warning to those paying attention. But it must be very sad for you to have to write such a poem about the errors of your fellow citizens.

Governments are not held to the same standards as their citizenry. The USA's debt is approaching 18 trillion. I'd lend it to them, but they'd probably just buy more war supplies and gold plated toilets.

Thank you, dear Kelly.Four years ago I had noticed that US debt was 16 tr.,100% of national income.It's getting all the more higher, I see.Any way I hope I have shown by the poem the crisis we have been plunged in.My country experiences the greatest one in its history.Thank you so much.

If America does not rearrange its horizons we will find ourselves in this same scarcity.

Unfortunatelly our democracies can not deal with those great problems when they allow to their elites use it for their own interests.We do need severe scrutinity on the actions of the governing and economical elites which lead nations to the crisis of poverty.
