Truth Black Truth Grey? - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

shades of truth in black or grey
truth is even driven reflected
in the colour of cars people drive

in Indonesian two colours dominate
cars are predominantly black or grey
like the colour of truth in the country

Indonesia usually ranks esteemed third
in top three for world internal corruption
without bribes this country cannot run

in this land the truth is black
truth has many shades of grey
upon these two colours is all run

Indonesia from any highway to byway
half the cost or more of building a bridge
any road in official bribes is paid out

    Thought provoking and powerful! Every country in the World has dirty dishes and it is hard to get rid of! This is a well crafted and poignant write that clearly shows the dirt in this particular place but we here in the USA or any country there is also dirt! ! Thank you for point out this evil thing that little by little is destroying the World! 10+++ Thank you for sharing and keep it up! God Bless You! Romeo-New York City (Report) Reply
