The Darkness Chokes The Sense Of The Homeless


The darkness chokes the sense

of the homeless

throwing punches of humility

and stealing the cents out of hats

too big to fit the head of a ten year old boy

silence awakens the mind of a soldier

trapped in a traumatized mind

he marches up and down his home to Iraqi time

and swings an AK around his head like a toy

bullets rain down in a cascade of calamity

and with the blindness of humanity

there’s more to this never ending story

of birth, disappointment, and death

medicine buys you an extra breath

but takes away twice the life

adults cheat on each other

teens resort to the knife

and poor babies, they don’t get any rights

there’s more vacant houses on a single block

than the times the gangster will cock his glock

at the very thought of red and blue

shallow crooks like Hillary say they know what it’s like

If only they knew

an eye for an eye, tooth for tooth

here’s some ecstasy and pot

in exchange for our youth

mom’s leave their children

in search of better pay

while feminists overlook the rising level of strokes

and the blood in the streets from where kids lay

nobody to guide them, that’s fine

let Justin Bieber lead the way

but he won’t give them back their time

tired of hearing about gender

while the news makes everything about race

let’s focus instead on treating each other like humans

because we all belong in this place

  1. This takes me back to my earlier days a bit. I was very young and silent. Everything seemed dark. There were battles everywhere. In my head. In the home. In the schools. Luckily for me though, I did not have to face the despair and battles in the street. So, for those that had and have to deal with all three places of conflict, you are the strongest of the bunch. I respect you.

  2. Amen – gender, race, divide and conquer. Sick of that old worn out tune. They play us like cheap fiddles. Grrr Hillary. There can be no good leaders. I like this:
    “medicine buys you an extra breath
    but takes away twice the life”

    Never stop writing, no matter what.
    Cos the wicked world will try and stop you. But defy it at all costs πŸ˜‰

      1. Your’e welcome Devereaux.
        Yes, I’m no Trump fan. I think they’re both crooks in different ways, but she is a career criminal, he’s more a cartoon criminal. I tend to hate them all though. Obama, Clinton(s), Bush, Reagan, May, Blair, Cameron, Thatcher. No matter what they say they end up serving the exact same banking and corporate agendas.
        The only one I liked over there was Ron Paul and that is why he never stood a chance. Anyway, looking how politics goes, 5 seconds after he got in, he would mysteriously turn to the dark side represent the rich against the poor just like the rest.


I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
