When wisdom flies the coup
The day wisdom flies the coup,
Is the day we will need to rally round hope,
And hang on tight to love with more than just rope.

Who could blame wisdom  if it decided to fly the coup,
When we don't bother to...Read More

Premium Member Asylum Seekers


Children are seized at the border
their parents led away in cuffs.
Under Presidential order
ICE morphed into a gang of toughs.

The United States has no shame
they sold their soul to the devil.
Asylum seekers bore the blame
for Trump sinking to this level.

Kids used...Read More

Another ear
Forgiveness is easy
So i choose not to
I forsake myself
so why should i treat you any differently
Are you special
Chosen from on high
Standing here my finger raised towards the sky
Forgive and forget
A joke forced down our throats
Rally round and crucify me
From your...Read More

How easily forgotten those souls
 of wars and battles of ten, twenty, sixty years ago,
when lives were given freely in belief and hope
  for the dreams of freedom and democracy we spoke.

One more hero falls

The fault line
People running for their lives,
Buildings falling,
The earth roars and splits,
Car’s turn over,
The earth is angry,
Gaping holes,
Collapsed roads,
Terror and death,
Devastation as disaster attack,
Before the stillness comes,
But wait! 
It’s not safe yet!
Here it comes again,
The aftershock,
Rumbling and shaking,
As people scream,
Then the calm,
It...Read More

Still waiting for my tomorrow
written by Mpho Leteng (Botswana) and Donald Kuutsi (Zimbabwe) 

When the sunrise, 
My undying spirit of determination rise, 
Curiosity knock on the doors of my chest, 
Demanding for tomorrow's answers, 
A puzzle that needs to be solved, 
Shadows of the...Read More

Double Standards
You don't miss a slice off a cut loaf
At least that's what most cheaters would say. 
But they're not talking about their wives
Because in their minds they have surmised
That their wives would never view life this way

So if this is...Read More

COPLA CINCUENTA Y CINCO: This Bad Guy World

Centre-half’s the heart of defence
Danger comes from the Right and Left:
Ball politics

When heart’s corrupt fickle sans sense
Enemy dribbles through with zest:
Goal posts drumsticks

The second line’s the general
Prince and people rally round him:
Alert spearhead

Goal...Read More

Hospice
An acquaintance of mine
(More the friend of a friend)
Was just told that her life
May be nearing its end.

She is ready for hospice,
Her doctor suggested;
She cannot go home,
Which is what she requested.

Her husband bailed out
When she first became sick,
Taking up with...Read More

As a boy I walked the town, near knowing everyone
The Sun it shone all Summer long I revelled in the fun
With relatives and friends we'd play, 'til darkness sought us out
Then caring aunts would hunt us home as cousins turn...Read More

1861
1861

Dust rises from the rutted road.  Cannon laden caissons rumble slowly forward.  A red sun competing with the campfires glow. Weary troops break camp, joining the ranks of
colleagues on the move. An enemy, unseen, lays before them, waiting...Read More

Always expect the unexpected. 
Don't be shocked by a surprise. 
Sometimes our nonchalant complacency 
presents a new gift in disguise. 

The future we had planned for 
isn't always whats in store, 
but for each lost opportunity 
we'll find another door....Read More

Thank you
Where would I be, 
Without loyalty, 
From the people I hold so dear,

Don't know how I'd get by,
Not a word of a lie, 
They take away all of my fear,

When the dark clouds surround, 
They all rally round, 
Slowly the...Read More

God didn't send a warrior bold
With drawn sword and shield
To face the evil of this world
And make old Satan yield.
Instead he sent His newborn Son
Wrapped in His Father's love
To captivate the world of men
With message from above.

Imagine this small innocent

THE LIFES' PATH
Such anniversaries 
I dread... 
Such memories, 
of remembering the dead 

The lifes' path 
Births ,deaths and more 
knocking on my door 

I must open the door, 
these things must come 
I cannot avoid, 
part of things I have done

THEY'LL RISE AND SHINE
The monster rose out of the sea,
Intent on devastation.
The wreckage it left in its wake--
Beyond imagination!

The world looks dark and dismal, now.
Heartbreak, on every hand.
A world of rubble and debris,
Where once was sun and sand.

But this night is not forever;
There...Read More
