An In the Whirlwind Poem

Under the mud
lies a smorgasbord of death
in all its forms.

Under the mud
lies a travesty disguised
as democracy.

Under the mud
lies the keys
to deathís kingdom.

Squelch through the mud
in a state of disbelief saying to yourself
this canít be in the land of milk and honey.

Squelch through the mud
to retrieve the keys
which will open deathís door
and the hands of the living dead
reach out beseechingly
while eerie voices cry out
help us please.

And you say, like refugees these people be
But that canít be in the land of milk and honey
And the word changes to evacuee.

And you start to wonder what was happening elsewhere
while you were sitting under the liberty tree
and why the tree didnít have roots strong enough
to protect and cover all the citizenry.

"Under the Mud" social poetic voices sing for justice.

I did learn from the reading of "Under the Mud".

In admiration,
