Pointing To The Problems

POINTING TO THE PROBLEMS {Bivouacs} Beat down with legal fees Tied up with taxes; Tripped up with mortgages; Ripped off with student loans Insulted with insurance Telephone updates. Out of date opts, New upgrade rates; Food on the down-low Carrots in the closet; Conjugating with fake rice. Plastic cabbage, inedible corn. Tomatoes with fish dung Water with lead, flatulent cows Polluting the air. Carbon emission: Beyond the stratosphere: Halliburton and agent orange. Nuclear explosion -radiation; Devastating the atmosphere. I can’t explain, with no nutrients to the brain. No minerals to the lungs n heart. Contaminated nation; Sheer contamination. Is it too late, to rise above the hate? Tired n Devastated, tried elevation. Tried to immunize, and fine tune My body to this new moon. With herbs n mushrooms. Sun Hot, Global Scorching... Illuminati wants hearts, and good body parts. Neanderthals,running back to their caves Underground bunkers, where they’ll be safe… Americans dangling off bridges with knapsacks; Flimsy structures and Bivouacs No air, no food, no heat, Not even water safe to drink. Like Dinosaurs and bees, fast becoming extinct. I can’t even think, with no nutrients to the brain. No minerals to fortify lungs n heart. Contaminated nation, Sheer contamination. With nowhere to run; What do you think should be done?

The World is not going to end anytime soon. You are still free to speak up and speak out. You did a good job doing so. May the lord always be by your side.

Thank you for highlighting some of the most painful things we are facing in this day and age. I think humanity needs to be reminded of its value and worth in order for us to be redeemed.

I suppose we should start in each of our little corners of the world and try our best to expand. If left up to government...well, hennywoo; anyhoo; I agree; well penned and honest.

I haven't a clue, wish I did. I read your poetry regularly and I'm always amazed and challenged. Your expressions provide a feast within a famine of mundanity. ~ john
