A BARREL OF OIL


A pretty soul is better Than the whole barrels of Oil anytime and anywhere, People are addicted to oil Because they love oil and They love to drive anytime, People are slaughtered like Sheep and cows everywhere And no one cares about people's Lives anytime and anywhere, Some people see a barrel of Oil is better than a pretty Soul and a very great life, The whole world is addicted To save the barrels of oil Rather than to save a pretty soul, so A human being's life is cheaper Than an ugly barrel of oil anytime.

    Hmmm, as a poet from the age of 12 (now 36) I feel this. I wrote a poem Children of the New Year, I'm sure you won't like it as much a feel it as well. I'm limited by being one if the fascist murders, but I have since renounce taxes & lay my life down with my words, but I don't die like the people your poem speaks for. (Report) Reply

    This is very true. This reminds me of how politicians in general care more about oil than the millions of innocents killed in abortions, wars, and crime.

And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
