Democracy dashed upon the rocks
Lighthouse guide has fallen dark
Mayday, mayday calls the flock
Two by two like Noah’s ark
Captain’s crew has blindly haled
Commands barked sure to kill
Near time win will long time fail
When keel doth rupture on sill
By headwinds sail to Davy’s doom
Tsunami comes rushing in
Neither hold nor deck is safety’s room
They’ll pay for ignorance sin
Histories ne’re kind to pirate thieves
Nor saber tongued silvery fools
While innocent victims losses grieved
Their anger grows til it’s cruel
Lashing out victims surely will march
The port be their final stand
Skyward they gaze backs and necks upwards arched
Victory’s sweet and it’s grand
Criminal fools feel they’re immune
Til their pokes raise the ire and rage
Common man pushed to the brink of his doom
Turns upon captor and cage
Freedom they hail til finally set free
WIth blood on their calloused hands
Keepers grotesque lay twisted at feet
The weaker take control of the land
Postponing their fate is futile at best
They’d be better to meld with the times
Thinking this day they’ll withhold from the rest
Soon they will answer for crimes

Absolutely lovely! Good to see you back!
Thank you Shelby, I appreciate that and keep fighting the good fight.
Good to see you back again Dom. So sad that the circumstances of which you write are proving previous predictions correct.
Thank you my friend. Our predicament on this side of the pond is quite troubling…something that I have not seen the likes of in my 50+ years. Hopefully our election next month will provide some relief from this time of insanity and regression to times we thought were long past.
It’s been a while, Dom. Good to see your name in my inbox.
Thank you Dan, I will try to be back around a bit more often. I will be trying to catch up on my reading.
How quickly are progressive gains deleted. A strong poem, Dom.

Excellent rhythm to this. Such a great piece of writing.

Thank you my friend, I’m working my way back very slowly.
