What's New - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

What's New
Written by: Wilfred Mellers,21 August 2015

What's yours was never mine
Human nature is in a serious decline
On swine heathens wine and dine
All things Babylon will undermine

We are left in total confusion
It's all an elaborate illusion
It's all just a mere fantasy
No one wants to face reality
These things I can't explain
For when it pours it's a hurricane

Memories fond I still retain
Sunshine now turns to rain
The king has left the mountain high
Sip from the life's fountain dry

Warm beaches water truly blue
Everything old is now something new
All things in the universe have a reason
All things under the stars come about in due season
For the rain makes flowers grow
What you don't know, you just don't know

You can't exist in the past
For who knows how long life will last
To the victor always goes the spoils
For when water is hot it boils

Cold is the spring that lays underneath
Now straighten once crooked teeth
Can't escape the summers heat
Once bitter now taste so sweet

White is the sand under my feet
Out of tune yet still upbeat
So loud and not discreet
Once new now totally obsolete

So slim and so petite
Once a midsummer night's treat
On your shoulder sat a parakeet
Chocolate tasted semisweet

Rested once on a broken seat
Life seemed so utterly complete
Sitting blissfully in a tropical retreat
All can be lost because of deceit

The admiral commands the 7th fleet
Some people still desire to cheat
Schoolgirls wear skirts with pleats
Rudeboys runs the heartless streets

There's never anything in the fridge to eat
Been some time since I've been under the sheet
To win you must compete
Failure doesn't always mean defeat

Bear in mind I repeat
Never someone you mistreat
Suffer not from conceit
Kindness you should never ever deplete
