-The News These Days Is A Hellish Thing To Watch-

 

“Hell is empty now,

The devils are all here.”

 

William Shakespeare

 

Music: The Rolling Stones,

Sympathy For The Devil

 

Our nation is now so horrifically, going up in flames

Immense wildfires are now consuming the Southwest

Severe Drought, is plaguing forty percent of America

While our politicians are devilishly destroying all the rest

 

To the north, entire old growth forests are now being leveled

For production of the dirtiest, most destructive oil - Tar Sands

In the Southeast, we are blowing up our mountaintops, for coal

As politicians joyously proclaim “Isn’t all this new energy grand!”

 

Fracking, to produce natural gas, is already causing tremors and earthquakes

Fresh water lakes, and rivers, and streams, are being drenched with pollution

Deep water drilling in the Gulf and in Alaska, will generate more hellish oil spills

In our greed-filled quest to exploit it all, for our planet, there will be no solution

 

And no effort at all is being taken to curtail our now skyrocketing human population

Our ‘leaders’ and most residents of our planet today have forsaken future generations

I sadly envision our once vibrant, life-filled planet as a devastated, barren, hellish place

The thought of what we once had, heaven on earth, now seems to be lost in our nation

 

“Hell is empty now,

The devils are all here.”

Hold strong Mr. Ed, for many things will shower down upon us (not speaking biblically) things that will scare us to death, horrors unimaginable, beauty wiped away, but have faith in the end we will all be enlightened.

Very powerful poem sir!

Yesterday, while writing Last Man Standing, an apocalyptic story containing all of the above in your poem, I was describing the destruction of firestorms that spread across the country after years of drought made everything tinder and anarchists set fire to the cities. All that remained was a barren landscape of dirt and mud with perpetual dust storms and muddy rain.

Let's hope it doesn't come to pass. I still believe it won't. Now it is nothing like the 1930s and they will not come again.

Dear Ed,

The news we are being fed is sugar coated, bias bull, political crap. The sad truth is most of us do not know the truth. We are putting our faith is our government and big business to "Do the right thing" for it's humble citizens. The only time we find out the "truth" these days is when a major accident occurs and the damage is already done. Then it's blasted all over kingdom come news stations worldwide. All countries and all governments fall short. I ask for ONE good model of ONE country that is SERVING the needs of their citizens without literally destroying the land it's people live on. We need to follow THAT model! Iceland and the Swiss rate among the top 10 cleanest of the industrial giants, Austria is another, France is also surprisingly rated 7 out of 10. Here is the source:

I wish we could blame it on the devils, maybe some religious group would get motivated and raise up the public to fight them, but they are all quiet, aren't they. I am afraid the devils are us, those among us, that just don't care about anyone else. Bless ya!
Reviewed by Ruan Mills Burke 6/13/2012
I couldn't agree more. I have thought for some time now that the devils are firmly among us and creating an unearthly havoc.
