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.

Open Gate

So the gate opens
Let’s see where the road will go
As I bare my soul

In Sickness and Hope

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Tiredness saps me
Nausea weakens my soul
Hope is a hand up

Society

Is society
Tension on the webs between
Elites and masses

Poem a day challenge #81 (Poor Race)

Poor Race

By Scott Bailey © 2013

As a race
We should step up
To eliminate the gap
Between the haves and the have-nots
Between the singers with their bling and the slaves on the line
Between the bankers with their blank cheques and the children in poverty
For most of history most men women and children
Lived in misery, died hungry.
We are a disgrace
As a race
