See the argent moon
Chasing the brightest sunbeams
Moments slip away

Jealousy

By Scott Bailey © 2016

 

Jealousy
A deadly sin
So we are taught
Over and over
Again
And when
We dare to question
The questionable ways
Of wealth and power
The smirk and hint
Jealousy
And the lessons rise
Prodding our conscience
Silencing our voices
With guilty pillows
Thus
Why we are taught
What we are taught
Is plain to see

Moonshine

Following on from my last post – I had further thoughts

By Scott Bailey © 2016

 

Shine for me moon, shine
I need your silver beams
To heal
To calm

My love is not for you
But shine for me still
The stars they pluck my heart
But not you

Shine your slow shine
Dip into the sea
Rise again one day
To shine away with me

A warm summer breeze
Teases scent across the plains
Tight the wolf pack runs

Humanity reduced to a bottom line.


Trapped. In a world where everything is measured and control pervades every area of life, four people begin to break down. Instead, they break through the walls of deceit and propaganda and into a world of revolution.

Each, in their way, vow to overthrow the established order. They embark on a journey against the forces arraigned against them, forces of state and self-doubt.

Ultimately their paths converge on a dangerous road and the discovery of an ancient secret.

One one level this is a story about how different people react the ever growing and relentless pressure of everyday oppression. It explores their journeys as they are broken and rebuilt and investigates their modes and motivations for rebelling.

At another level it is a critique on the darker side of capitalism and free markets and how that has…
