Life On Earth – Part 2

Life on Earth

Life on Earth

The apparitions pass as vision

through a prismed glass

from which we drink


never knowing that which comes next

for forever and a day

until that final recognition

bitter sweet



Until then we are entertained

watching the show

bemused and titillated

with a modest paranoia

first sign of awareness


how has all this come to pass

what’s going on

so obvious we are afraid to look

perhaps too late to understand

the players

kings and queens  who’ve shrugged the weight of crowns

adorned with yachts and helicopters

wealth beyond imagination.


Politics American

games played by millionaires

we look without much choice

beyond diversions given


divert attention

while they  pick our pockets

clean out anything that’s left

whatever freedoms

savings, property or promises as yet not repossessed.
