Below is the poem of the day entitled Burnt remains lost without peace which was written by poet liam mcdaid.

Burnt remains lost without peace

Darkness you have a funny way of shading the light 
colour coding from such a pit spinning the web of deceit 
clouds within suffering victims cry to the heaven's 

Shame on such corrupt souls poisoned by lies 
twisting truth shows bad manners condemning justice 
to speak correctly false faced inside forked tongues 

Where the poor are heavily burdened inside such greed 
values no longer hold the ground to address this shift backwards 
principles are darned from the fabric sewn into morality 

Backwards thinking science crosses a great divide in society 
slavery is rising fast where the toils of labour have been reduced 
to crusts little crumbs are being swept away like worthless pieces of dust

Hey pal, miss our collab together. Soon Jesus with his heavenly armies will crush all greedy oppressors and their minions and dupes into fine dust (Revelation ch 19). Nice expose

A very dramatic, truth-filled piece of work here, Liam. Hard hitting and tough for the guilty to hear. Good stuff! Jaclyn
