“ Followed Heroes ” ~ that weren’t ~

We followed heroes

That weren’t,

They who sent boys

In their stead

To get burnt,

Maimed, lamed

Or wretchedly dead…

 

We follow cowards,

Who professed

To undo the mess,

Of affluent power

Held un-confessed,

Orchestrators

Of partisan-fests,

Only to find

They heroed us blind,

To pocket what’s yours

And what’s mine…

 

Yet we the naive

Follow heroes that aren’t,

Who cause us grieve,

The while charade

Fixing the morrows,

To incarnate their masquerade!

“ Food For Thought ” ~ saw food for life ~

 

Food for thought

In times of yore

Said life was core,

Hence so man’s lot

Held meant forage

Be his sedulous chore…

 

Though venal man

Saw food for life

In a deceitful way,

Evoking thought

Of avarice gain,

Altered for greed

As man regressed

To lower bane,

Set grow false feed

Of a genetic deed,

While fellowman

Begged nature’s need

Reach deaf politic ears,

And so for life made plead!
