**Everything is Broken*


Making lies
Breaking society,
Straining strings
Lost sobriety;
Everything’s broken oh no, oh yes everything is broken

Ain’t no use lying ain’t no use in living
But being outspoken with lyrical oral flex
Will leave you living

Knotted lives, with throttles necks,
Shattered hearts and broken dreams
Fiscal crises leaving everything broken
We are broken they are broken
We have broken heads they broken banks
As we sleep in broken beds they creep in and take what’s left

Broken rights, broken delights
Even the detail down to broken headlights,
Broken hands on broken flowers
Broken powers in wrongful hands,
In these new Bad Lands the populace are croaking
Ignored by the spin in motion,
Oh today; like yesterday is broken
Everything just broken
Broken jaws and broken laws

Everything is broken
Broken is everything

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
