A DAY OF JUSTICE NOT FORGOTTEN

A DAY OF JUSTICE NOT FORGOTTEN

 A DAY THAT ROCKED THROUGH MY VEINS
ITS MEMORIES SETTLED IN MY HEAD
A DAY I CAN NOT FORGET
 the hands of that bane where put into a CHAIN
A BETTER EGYPT I BET



A HERO WAS HE
BUT NOW , HE IS NOT THE SAME 
A DICTATOR HE BECAME
HE IS ALSO LAME
HE MADE US WALK WITH SHAME
HIS WIFE BASED ON NOTHING MADE HER SELF  A DAME 
DESTTROYING OUR CULTURES WAS HIS AIM 
HE PLAYED A DIRTY GAME 
HE NAMED EVRYTHING STUPIDLY AFTER HIS DEVILISH NAME
I FINALLY STARTED  NAMING EVERYTHING MUBARAK
THE STARS WERE MUBARAK 
THE WALLS WERE MUBARAK 
THE TREES WERE MUBARAK 
THE BEES  WERE MUBARAK
I even NAMED MY FUTURE SON MUBARAK

HISTORY IS WRITTEN 
PEOPLE ARE DREAMING 
OF THEIR FACE JOY IS BEEMING 


ENEMIES ARE BOILING 
DIGING THEIR  GRAvE 
NOTHING TO SAVE 
SADNESS FILLING THEIR DAY AND NIGHT 
BLINDING THEIR SIGHT 

IT IS A DAY NOT FORGOTTEN 
OVER CENTURIES

Groc the Grook

Come children all - and gather round, I’ll read to you from my old book, which once was lost, but now is found. It tells a tale of ‘Groc the Grook’. “Now Groc was keen to grundle round, but sadly Groc was not so bright, for when he grundled underground, they’d grindle him - at dead of night. No need for them to grope for clues, they heard him - in his greaky shoes!” ~

Tomorrow's Blank Page

The fear of the past
is all but in the mind.
It's the turning of tomorrows blank pages,
once turned, what will we find?

History Lesson

History is an open book
If we would just turn the pages.
Perhaps it is fear that prevents a look
At life throughout the ages?

History Repeated

HISTORY GROOK #1

History is an open book
We could easily turn the pages.
Perhaps our fear prevents a read
Of life throughout the ages?



HISTORY GROOK #2

History in flux;
The ebb and flow of life;
Lessons learned by none.


[For C.L. Thornton, the master of the grook.]
