Splashing on the beach
Throwing pebbles in the surf
With red sun sinking

Poem a day challenge #86 (Intolerance)

Intolerance

By Scott Bailey © 2013

I am a tolerant man no more

Intolerant of inequality
And all who promote it
Intolerant of injustice
And all those who peddle it
Time to make the world
The way it should be

Holy Ben Affleck!

Ben Affleck is the new Batman – does not bode well.

OK – Maybe I shouldn’t judge – let’s hope I am proven wrong.

Poem a day challenge #85 (Who’s the Fool)

Who’s the Fool

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Listen to all the anger
Hark at all the fury
Just remember that
You no longer own the jury

Humiliate the whistleblower
Make him out a fool
Wielding propaganda
Like an old blunt tool

Don’t you know we’re cynics now
We can see through all the lies
You will have to do much better
Or suffer the surprise.
