A Taxing Time

It is a taxing time,
for waxing and waning.
The bottom is falling out,
and the tears are raining.

Corporate CEOís are lined up,
and handled with anger.
Not one honest man,
has been found there.

Everyone complains,
that there is no work--none.
Yet everywhere one looks,
there is work to be done.

In less than a century,
we lost touch with our Earth.
We now rather give her money,
than cultivate her worth.

We grow our food,
in a supermarket aisle.
To help our neighbor,
we won't walk a mile.

When we do walk,
we are on the phone.
No time to say, " Hello,"
passing those all alone.

When all is lost,
even ones' self worth.
It is time to dig deep,
and find a new birth.

The artist who died,
amid his paintings of great worth.
Died not of hardship,
but of his contribution to Earth.

The time is taxing,
but don't die alone.
Leave something for others,
that's not your own.

An excellent and well honest poem.We live in such a narcisstic society where it lacks humanity.When you said "When we do walk,we are on the phone,no time to say hello passing those all alone".I've experience that before.I was sitting in the park and once in a while or sometimes I would see this woman walking her 2 dogs.She's not a friend or anything,we just say good morning and that's it.One day I wanted to say hello to her,but she was busy with her phone.Its cool at how technology has changed over the years,but people should just put down their phones,ipod,sidekicks,blackberries for one second and just say hello that's all.I enjoy this poem,take care

Ron, this is inspiring -- cause greater than self has been degrading rapidly over the past half century -- there is great nobility in a legacy to earth, and our benefactors -- and in this case, our benefactors are the whole of mankind -- I hope your poem serves as a wake-up call -- humanity needs it -- thanks my dear friend -- may the light of love bring great peace and joy to you as you journey through life -- JMW

Valid thoughts here, Ron! How well you've summerized some of the problems that have beseiged us these past years -- and especially now! Our priorities are all wrong, when we put material things above human value, and our planet's worth. I think I'll email and share this poem with 10 of my friends. It's a keeper. Thanks!

Wow, Ron, you have written a lot in a short space, all worth reading. I wonder if things are going to change for the better, but am delighted that we no longer have the Bush administration to drive us into the brink.

Cheers and peace,

Bang on. My husband use to teach in a wing where Business Administration classes were taught. He overheard the profs say that the only morality is the bottom line. If it makes money, it is moral. Good grief; ya and not an honest one in the bunch. sickening. True too, the sixties were good times in which to make a decent living but we or many of us weren't satisfied and wanted more. see documentary "In Debt We Trust." Explains it all. Thanks for this exceptional poem. J'nia
