The Field of Brown

My head will drown 
My face will frown 
My head will drown 
In a field of brown 

The people run 
The normal shun 
The people run 
From everyone 

Love has vanished 
Trust is banished 
Love has vanished 
Amongst the famished 

Sadness spreads 
Shame rethreads 
Sadness spreads 
Through all the heads 

Advice is taken 
All are shaken 
Advice is taken 
To reawaken 
Now they see 
Now they see 
What it is to be 

Get used 
To getting used 
Or the abused 
Become confused 

Find yourself 
In private hell 
Then you’ll tell 
You never fell 

The starry sky 
Of the sorry night 
Will make you forget 
You forgot to fight 

Blizzards come 
Freeze the sum 
Of every bum 
To the point of numb 


Then we come down 
We come down 
In the field of brown 

The brown will sleep 
As the famished weep 
The brown will sleep 
With all of the sheep 

The snow will fall 
While the famished crawl 
The snow will fall 
Upon the call 

A second of peace 
A second release 
A second of peace 
That will never cease 

The famished are dead 
The field is bred 
Without a head 

Then we come down 
We come down 
From the field of brown

    Hi Rob, I like how you've used the 'field of brown' to showcase what's missing in the world. No more luscious green -only famished hearts and emotions. Very well written. I would like to extend my hand in welcome to the PoetrySoup community. There’s a lot to learn from each other here and hopefully you will have a great time while at it. Feel free to check out my poems when you can. I am looking forward to reading more from you. Vicky.
