Evil Web

 
Evil weaves its’ web
Disguised as democracy
Awaits the naïve
The too easily deceived
Until it’s too late to run
And too hopeless to stuggle

    Good point. We in South Africa are what we call Democratic Communists.... now there is a contradiction in terms, if you ever want one. Furthermore, the poor is robbing the destitute to pay the rich. No lie :-) Love, Su

    HI, Craig. I enjoy this although I know you and I differ on things politically. I happen to think a little bit of socialistic democracy is not all that bad! I'm getting so tired of seeing the rich get richer and the poor getting poorer. (anyway, it's a very fine line and a good balance is really needed).

    Hi Andrea, I was actually referring to other countries in South America and the Middle East that say they're democracies but are certainly not. Your feelings are safe within this write.--Luv Ya

    just to help hon depending on who this is for it may or may not matter..tanka was usually a love poem and you want at least the last two lines to be very personal / don't rhyme.. hmmm ex: [I feel the evil/those who think they are free/burgers eating pump jocks/ three jobs to feed the brood/baby mama's in the house] see? much more personal SUBJECTIVE..full of blood not anticeptic? XXXXOOO Light & Love
