The Moon Like God

Inside of me                          
Inside the heart of me
And the imagination of me I look to a new world
As the winter closes in on all of us
And the long gray days are filled with shadows of the past
Now the game is on
And the poor will be required to give thanks for what little they have
Thankful for safety razors and birth control perhaps
The well healed among us will eat to much and drink to much
And TV news will proclaim the miracle of treating the less  fortunate like human beings
At least twice a year
Where are the Jobs congress
Oh yes that's right you sent them over seas
And the moon like God looks down on everyone

    You've penned it accurately Michael, though I am glad you ended it on verse "The moon like God looks down on everyone" I feel you're compassion for you're fellowmen, and though the plight of the world isn't good, you're heart here tries to illumine the good, you've succeeded, love hugs and peace xxx glad you like Louis Armstrong, he rocks xxx

    I agree with you Michael I hate the way that life is so unequal, it is the same in every country. Our ridiculous leaders and all their rich friend prosper while old people die of hunger and the cold. Great read my friend...peter

    In the highest level of humanity must the jackal approve the hyena's diet as the hated vulture circles above, awaiting the death of all of them?... (Just a rhetorical question)... Nice writing, Michael....
