It’s taken just seven days for you to return and the world is a changed place.
There has been a major bridge burn since the last time you were here.
The armies around the world continue to have a go at demolishing the fragile peace the civilised world longs for:
It really is getting too much to handle, it’s becoming a total blur.
News bulletins are becoming something you want to miss, hiding your head in the sand.
It is not going to go away, you know, if you believe differently you’re at nothing.
Let us hope that the person in charge steers well clear of that RED button.
~The Poet’s Poet~
Composed back in 2016, published in my book of poetry and short stories Same Train, Different Track.
I was reminded of it earlier this evening by a blog post from Fransi Weinstein – 365 and Counting. If you are not familiar with her weekly post do check it out always interesting.
