The Ugly Truth

Riches Rampant beneath The surface, a body Dressed in curves, hard edges, and sea Bounty. Goodness That is needed By the masses, a gift, Yet used for self gain carelessly A rift. By those Who pursue greed Seeking gains and power Without the checks and balance of Nature. We see The ugly truth Over the globe, high bill Of disasters and waste so crude Oil Spills.

... poesy is the mouth-piece of humanity ... you’ve spoken for the down-trodden … everywhere ... like you're speaking for Africa ... if not for “ ” ... this is a winning slot, for sure ... Cheers! Canny
