Fuel

November 25, 2015

The lies
Are pouring out
From both sides
Fueling this insanity
Incinerating reality
Into indiscernible lies
Breaking form
Crashing apart
Pointing fingers
All over
The largest pissing match
Since the days of our
Grandparents

Resolution

July 29, 2014

This post
Will resolve
All the fighting
All the violence
All the abuse.
If every last soul
Stopped and took
Two minutes
From what they
Were currently engaged in
And read these lines
All at the same
Exact moment
In time
We would be without
Violence
Fighting
And abuse
But alas
We don’t educate
Our poor
We don’t enable
Our under appreciated
We don’t respect
Our elders
And thus
No problem
Will ever be
Resolved.

War Pains

Families gather
To remember the ones lost
No soul forgotten

The Fool Follows

April 1, 2014

Was I the fool?
To follow that rule
To work for bread and butter.
Was I the mark?
Who did embark
To help one another.
Was I the quack?
Who didn’t attack
My brethren on the field.
Was I the naïve?
Who was deceived
Into picking up sword and shield.
Was I so wrong?
For playing along
Being a sheep in the herd.
Was I not right?
For I did not fight
Thinking it rather absurd.

Grave Digger

March 10, 2014

Chapped and cracking hands
Swiftly swinging a shovel
Burying the dead
Of another unfortunate event
Sweat drips swiftly
Slipping down his back
Like a thousand before
Digging unmarked graves
To bury the secrets
Of unmarked lives
May they always
Rest in peace.

Battle

The noble battle
Has not a single victor
But two defeated
