Some like to write on the good of life
While others strive on trouble and strife
Are differing ways of looking at the world dishonest –
playing with words the poets prerogative?
Trying hard to comply with the rules is trying
Always swimming against the tide
puts you at a disadvantage
Remembering at all times there are always two sides to a story.
Were not tangents invented so as ‘writers’ could hop on board
and go in different directions all at once
distancing ones self, slipping between the cracks solves nothing
confuses matters all the more
tossing that imaginary hand grenade
what does it gain?
It may well bide more time
But will that solve the issues at hand?
It is rarely seen to do so
Level headed constructive thinking
yes that appears to be the answer
to all world disasters
once the poor can be used as human shields
terrorists on all sides will continue their annihilation.
