Vacuum Cleaner - Poem by yoonoos peerbocus

Powered by the super power
of the sun of electricity
the peace prize promoting city
the vacuum cleaner, dusts
better than any guest of dust
but unscavenged
is the world's body seeping sore
with carnage, genocide, terrorism
where rain runs red
on the leftover humanity
whose suffering is hard to touch
and harder still to be buried
in man's conscience
whose putrefaction rising, rises
endangering the air
the survivors breathe
and as warriors of peace
still warring against hatred
and fighting for love
as man's kinsmen.

    'where rain runs red

    whose suffering is hard to touch
    and harder still to be buried' - dangerous situation!

    I suspect that Akhtar has got it spot on. Until then let love be the vacuum cleaner. One day we might have a world worth living in. Great write, Yoonoos (Report)Reply

    I think black holes are the vaccum cleaners of the nature. If dust of this earth goes on increasing a black hole seems our ultimate end. (Report)Reply

    the sound my mind makes when scavenging the rug (shampoo or sponge) this is an intaking of areas that are not of the self for the truth of the front man in the time line of an individuals being is honestly none of their business. vice E versa with computer and cross references in aggression of profit.
