Contemplation

I contemplate endings and beginnings, as the globe turns much more times than my Better chances have burned, I feel eternity's intent to smaller or larger affairs is Almost democratic In it's indifference, also i pick up inferrance of certain change Yet life & death are quite unmoved, still intransigent binary bedfellows trencher men Swallowing our life's days nights efforts, in what cause? The cause of freedom? the Cause of consumerism? One thing I feel it cannot be for love' or honour; or equality So if its none of the above what can we gain? What do we count as gain? Division? Derision? Knife crime tension fear, we have the one parent familys the children in Pre school all day, women at risk at when alone; prolific drug use, the hostility to Creation and God' The stifling of free speech? We have all these as part of our reality Yet more is required it seems' ore will redress the balance? Or should that be Imbalance.?

Hi, Joe. Took me several ready (some sroppog due to spellings) but ultimately his penning gets our raves (I got Jim involved, too). Much expressed, so much of it very important, tho with a stream’ flow, as usual helped along with your internal rhymes and alliteration. More of your voice I wish the general public see!

As harry says, we are reaping what was sown. Too bad many innocent lives will be lost in the reaping. Dang, I see your reset contest closed. I had hoped to write for it, but nothing was coming to me!!!
