Drivin' Me Wild


Mount Zion, do we deserve,
Bleeding, bleed bonds, no reserves,
Savior, saving privates and sinners,
Break fast, last suppers and dinners,
Diamond encrusted sidewalks,
Plateau corrupted by Wall Street,
Casting call, new caste system,
Edgar's Raven over Jim Crow,
Grudges imprison millions,
Judges imprint war on drugs,
Terror temper tantrums,
D date declare drums, anthems,
Lois, memory lane, trials of a Superman,
All that glitters, figments of wealth,
Upon a time lies, eugenic views of self,
Heart and mind follow it,
Vividly counting steps,
Take a bow now or never,
Stirred up chances darling,
Mocking world, we are Marley.

    Wonderful conglomerate of our so called socio-historic world. A very smooth opening to so many things that are embedded into our culture. To be read many times with enjoyment.
    I have something to add if I may
    Do we deserve non-evolving government?
    Where the Chief controls the Tribe,
    Where the Dictator kills all drive,
    And All have to pay their fare share (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
