Darkness Approaches

Darkness approaches

Yet we don’t see it coming.

We have been lied to,

Betrayed by our government.

Still…many among us cheer.

Maybe I’m confused

When those affected revel.

Blindly happy;

Ignoring their own demise

…One day soon the sky will fall.

  1. The way things are going… the sky seems to be destined to fall for the entire world. Powerful writing.
    And we miss you at Heeding Haiku With HA prompts. Hope you would visit and participate with us again. 🙂

  2. You must want to land up in a re- education camp… Wait FEMA camp. You know the ones where the barbed wire is facing in not out… our government never lies to us… Wait someone is knocking on my door:) oh it’s two men…brb

  3. You know Dom, I’ve travelled the world and I’ve often seen this happen … it’s really crazy. A couple of year ago I read some of Alexis de Torqueville’s Democracy in American … very insightful and helped me understand the root of the problem. Here’s a wikipedia link about him which includes a brief review on his Democracy in America … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexis_de_Tocqueville
