Futility

Why is it that human beings are prone to violence? Since the days of Cain and Abel, man has found reasons to harm each other. Can you explain this phenomenon to me? Now we wish to build walls and arm our selves. To protect ourselves from governments and neighbors we have the need for automatic weapons and concrete bunkers we call home.

Politicians lie, steal in the name of our universal good. Line their pockets with our cash and smile while we head to the poor house. Yet we elect them to guide us to Camelot asking for a fairy tale ending. When reality sets in and we are forced to the soup lines all we do is complain about the Futility of it all.

Explain it to me, please.

Crimsom Fields

I walked those Crimson fields with their white placards
Rows of heroes laid to rest in memorandum
I cried as I walked, as I search for brothers
Lies were told,  to band us all together

Flags upon their graves for patriotic splendor
Those same flags those heroes souls surrendered
They walk the grounds with ghostly hearts
Knowing they were a part

Lies and deceptions not known until they did depart
Politicians raise the bar for their lying hearts
Knowing the Warriors will lay
In the Crimson fields they paved

I I walked those Crimson fields with their white placards
Rows of heroes laid to rest in memorandum
I cried as I walked as I search for brothers
Lies were told to band us all together

Start of a new book. If this poem stirs you. Maybe my book  “Understanding will  do the sameSame.
