Cold Cold News

The news chills today
The child killers found guilty
Will justice suffice?

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

Wallowing

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Corrupt. Wealthy. Safe.
Wallowing in filthy loot
And laughing at us

Trench

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Dancing with my wife,
last week the telegraph came:
Coughs ring round the trench.
