Political Plight

The world is ripe with so much insanity
Delusional thoughts are caused by our vanity
We’re fallen away from our natural humanity
Angry frustration is spewing profanity

What we are doing is wrong but feels right
So strong in our feelings we’re willing to fight
Belligerent words that cause so much spite
The weak are shouting with emotional might

Silently awaiting the thunderous storm
The angry, like locust, constantly swarm
Their screams take on a chaotic form
Self-destruction is becoming the norm

Heads hung low and hands held out
Reaching for promise but receives only doubt
The kings are wrapped in fictitious clout
They point their fingers and openly flout

The slaves wallow and are stumbling blind
Their souls, in blood, are willfully signed
The teeth are breaking as they painfully grind
Toil and trouble is all they can find

The kings are made gods in their heavenly high
They eat from the stomachs of servants who cry
The wolves are prowling and howl at the sky
Their final attack is impeccably nigh

There is nothing left to justly defend
Bleeding wounds that shall never mend
Sanity’s mind cannot comprehend
This is the path from beginning to end

Thank you, I appreciate your compliments very much.

This particular poem was to a beat in my head, which progressively gets faster and faster - then in the final stanza slows down to a crawl.

That's awesome. Do you have any friends or do you work on music?

A friend recently made a beat for me and we recorded me saying one of my poems. It was really neat. I'll have to figure out how to make a youtube video recording or something and share on here.. It was fun to do.

Once upon a time I did. But over the past few years my friends and I have drifted apart. I suppose life does that.

If you make that video I'd like to see it.

Another amazing piece. Really digging your writing style and what you have to's though provoking and so darn true!
