5 minute poetry at its worst


A Moment Of Silence 


Old normal

New normal 


Final formal

Half a million deaths 

And counting 

Conspiracy theories 

And civil unrest mounting

Facts are fiction 

Truth is lies

Corporate entitlement 

With congressional ties

Poverty distributed

Like stimulus

Freedoms surrendered

To lobbyists 

Wake up

Wake up

All hail the king

Who doesn’t care

About anything 

He can’t be wrong

If we don’t listen

Stop the world

America’s gone missing

Certainly a topical poem Shady, I think it went missing after J F K was knocked off!
