The Evil Hands of Tyranny

See “The Evil Hands of Tyranny” gripping coils and springs,
As they crush the throats and lives of all innocent people
Who cry for fairness and justice—but get only a deaf ear. 

Dealing cards falsely makes a laughing stock of us all,
While we gaze at that “Dark Spirit” with his ghastly grin 
And evil intentions to steal our very souls like Mephisto. 

From power hungry fools—greed envelopes all who pay
Attention not to the real evil that some men do to others,
But to those who appear to be fooling themselves true.

This brings pain, suffering, bitterness—and not peace,
And disturbs mankind’s harmony and hope for a better
Existence as the rapacious “Dogs of War” are unleashed.
Twisting wars to suit underlying issues is that all-too
Occurrence in our world as the young, old, and weak
Face “The Grim Reaper” who snickers at this chance.  

The rich get richer with ill regard, or even no regard for
Others not so blessed who live this precarious moment,
As the innocent endure such monstrous and virulent evil. 
This manifests itself in a hideous mask of hateful deceit 
And true lies toward any poor person who objects to this 
Horrid reality and challenges “The Evil Hands of Tyranny.”

    Hi Liam n' Gary!A most powerful piece,you've penned here my dearest friends.Very sad in content and subject, but very beautifully written n' filled of so much truth.Yes, it is so very sad what's taking place all over our world everyday. So many very sad and horrible situations, very terrible injustices against mankind, and very deplorable things, and it really saddens my heart and soul so very much. All this that you write about in your piece here is so very sad n' so tragic,indeed, but not surprising really at all, because it's all written there n' very clear in the Word of God, is in the book of Revelations, Daniel, etc, so we know exactly where all these horrible situations are leading to.Thanks alot for caring, writing n' sharing, this very powerful n' most excellent piece here.Just outstanding! Superb!Well done!Your pens are mighty golden!A 7 +++ to each! A Fav!Wishing you a very lovely week!In His light!God bless you always!:)Love n' hugs!xoxox D.^O^
