Words beckon...Read More

Competing Cooperative Archetypes Categories: descriptive, earth, games, health, integrity, peace, spiritual, Form: Political Verse
Everyday games we play
grow productive successes
and over consuming failures.
Every day and night
we try to reduce
RightWing dominant overproduction
Gap growing devolution
of bilateral failing anti-invitation.
Every mutual distrusting day
quick fix addiction
fuels competitive co-dependency.
Every cooperative night
constrains rabid Lose to Lose competitions
spiraling monstrously inhumane growth
Still Asking Why Categories: descriptive, poets, Form: Rhyme

At its essence mundane
Ensconcing the lie
The sage waxed poetic
