A powerful, apt, and timely message, Ron. You posted this over four years ago; if anything, things are even worse. Love and peace,

You've written our destiny between the lines.

Greed, Apathy and Hate.....the three words of our own destructive path.

Your poetry is lways some of the best I've read.

indeed oppression and greed do have heavy feet, and getting heavier by the day...

A world of hurt, alright Ron. Good capture. But what to do? The only effective solution (voluntary population reduction) seems obvious to me, yet is unobtainable, therefore is no solution at all. So, the one option remaining is observation and reporting to those still capable of being surprised, and of that I shall avail.
Best regards,

SSDD (Same sh** different day) Ron. Nothing ever seems to change except for the faces of the oppressed. The world is a cruel place and though many give "lip service" to wanting to make it all better, few sacrifice of themselves to make it so. We sit in our palace with food in our cupboards and cry for the people who starve...but do we go to them and teach them how to feed themselves? Do we give them seed to plant, do we take them books and teach them to read to give them the knowledge to effectively shape their future? The answer is no. We all assume that someone else will do it for us. It is not the job of governments to do this, it is the job of we humans.
Some of us continue giving money to charities that are not solving the problem. A hand out instead of a hand up is like putting a band-aid on a bleeding artery. Excellent and aware write, Ron.
Take care,

a frightening testimonial to state of our mad mad world ... i can only hope that historically this is the time when mankind can shift into a more enlightened and cooperative world or fall under the weight of a crumbling civilization ... which way it is to go, who knows?

True enough, how to change it is the question...certainly not will our present presidential administration do anything worthy of note...Ed

You describe it well in this excellent poem! Though chilling, it is very real, and we should take heed!
