The Bane Of Humanity

Poem by Michael Walkerjohn

materialistic societies
never lasting … lasting as
in forward moving, not becoming
buried in rubble; ceasing to be remembered
visible only after ‘being rediscovered' thousands
of years after; expressing trinkets and burials
waste, and pestilence, woe; and curiosity.
Not much at all to be further mentioned
about what is shown to be truth … any
society, developed from materialistic
characteristics have in their times …
so become, the bane of humanity.

Aksum, Kush, Yam, Xiongnu, Greco-Bactria, Yuezhi, Mitanni
Tuwana, Mauryan, Indo-Greek, Silla, Harappans, Sanxingdui
Nok, Etruscans... and a gazillion more... So, What the
phuuck is America? Next?

    If only we were told the truth about that.
    You get an Amen Brother from this corner!

    Keep preachin' it,
    holding up the torch
    of sanity!
    We be reachin' it
    dodgin' scorch,
    while we be FREE!(Report)Reply

    Aloha Chuy and Cheers! Thanks for having a visit and grabbing hold of this wright... Yea, nations on the verge of coming apart at the seams are a dime a dozen... and the baker left town! Considering that the list civilizations were around for a thousand years or more... WE be weak! All of the best from this life, to you, and to all of our relations... Michaelw1two
