Safe deposit boxes often hold dreams hostage, and life's can be a likely accomplice. Now, more than ever, we can look to the bad guys as well.

Innocent vacuum rectangle of all that is good in mankind

Dream catcher, dream snatcher, dream leave it  behind.


Up marble stairs, in through the glass gates, down carpeted steps

Into the cavern of wee little doors, waiting to see which one will strip


The unsuspecting victim next, of their morals, principles, hope.

Who ever thought corruption could outgrow our mind's scope?


Love do you have your key? and does it perfectly match the bank's?

Don't lose it while dashing through your life on tender planks.


Don't stretch your mental muscles and turn and look around

and wonder all of a sudden, how your values have wound down.


All for papers residing in a box waiting for a matching pair of keys

Or the hope you traded yesterday, expecting more than these


Paltry scraps of a well crafted future that is now a puny past

Something emerges from a horror show and you are a starring


of the

This takes me back to when my parents would go to check on their stocks and bonds. Thank God they were never "taken"!

Love ya!

Thank you, Darrell and Kathy, for a unique and powerful message, scripted in a most compelling way. I like your whole approach to this and especially how you have made quite a "concrete" material subject so imaginative and visual. This just goes to show that there is no such thing as a "poetic topic" or, conversely, a topic that is NOT poetic when looked at with fresh and creative eyes and minds. Bless you, Kate xx

Sadness in these lines, Kathy - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Who would have thought that the robbers will be the bank-cashiers?
Who would have thought that a Vice-president would be so corrupt offering the lives of over 4000 American soldiers so his cronies could take cheap oil?
Yes, who would have thought that for gain a few bucks to put in secret accounts they would go to the extent of bankrupting America?
Bank Boxes have not only secrets but also the truth away from our eyes.
