Urgent Call for Love

 Urgent Call for Love

The evil axis has been burning
Who rules the land? It’s now very vague.
The second son must get out of old Al Sham
And meet the hungry jury in The Hague
The puppet is hanging by his last string
And the judgment day is sure to come
Forty thousand martyrs will be singing
As they join me in my urgent call for love.

The war machine is pregnant and is bloated.
Money births an icy, rigid son.
He grows up in the muck of all this madness,
It arms its addled brother with a gun.
In my world, war is not an option,
Let’s end the chaos with a silken glove
Murdered angels soar among the heavens
Please join me, in my urgent call for love.

I’d love to build a mass market dart board
With mug shots of the Senators and House
I’d load it on an App and shoot the darts off
With the quiet, perfect clicking of my mouse.
How can these servants bow before their master?
When Moses had already freed his tethered load?
Make them testify before the one judge
And answer to our urgent call for love

Some years ago a scholar lost his lectern
Because somebody stole my vote away
He spoke his truth in defense of climate
And was told let’s fix it later, not today
When the perfect storm came a calling
It blew our measured lives and hopes astray
 My Mother, here’s an olive branch and white dove
I surrender to the urgent call for love.

The pleading skies and rivers, they have warned us
Their voices rose to wail their tortured song
The veins of life, they have been all corrupted
And darkness has been blinding us in fog.
Insanity bathes in its make shift chambers
It soaks in a vile and filthy marble tub.
Please join in my call for our salvation,
I am humbled,   in my urgent call for love.

    Brenda Although the powers that be would have us all believe that 'LOVE' is on the defensive , this is not true. The reason Hate and evil is so prevalent today is, it knows it's days are numbered. LOVE conquers all. Very moving piece a 7 for sure Take care Brenda

    I am with you, Brenda. I am so with you. I like the idea of a gigantic dartboard and the faces which make it up. Long ago the "governing" body in Washington have lost touch with the common man. They have elevated themselves above everybody else, and it is suicidal, because one day the masses are going too lose the restraint they have and it will not be a pretty picture in my way of thinking. A very good poem. One that give the reader a lot to think about.

    Loved your words that painted the picture of the decadence that surrounds society today..very poignant.

    Nice and meaningful

    It alludes to some very relevant topics. It brings to my mind things like: clean air and environment, peace, and concern for community.

    Amazing poem brende really good
  1. Date: 10/14/2013 1:31:00 AM

    i am impressed by both the theme and the style. the only wish, if it were intact in a shell so cute with brevity adornments! God bless, very inspiring, the diction is very promising. ' pleading skies, veins of life... .. no olive branch, nor any white dove would ever bring peace and prosperity, content and refinement, just ' apple vs bullet ' , my humble verses have the answer inevitable. God Bless.

    Hie Brenda. This is a well thought OUT and pain-stackingly written poem. Your call for peace and love resonates in our hearts! You're are an Ambassador for PEACE- allow me to call you as such! Thanks for sharing this gem! JM

    Meaningful poem. I love poems with a peaceful, and, or religious connotation.
  1. Date: 10/13/2013 9:49:00 PM

    The message is clear. How can we rid ourselves of all of the confusion, turmoil and chaos. Things are so unstable and uncertain. Fear and abundant defense mechanisms are everywhere. There is only one thing missing though. Whose love should it be. God's love of course and naturally which was always meant to be. Oh, and God bless you being that He is the only one who can.

    Fantastic as I have come to expect from you BUT you don't write enough! [at least not here for me to read!] I hope you ARE writing somewhere because your skill demands it. A Fan. Light & Love
