For poets who want unrestricted constructive criticism. This is NOT a vanity workshop. If you do not want your poem seriously critiqued, do not post here. Constructive criticism only. PLEASE Only Post One Poem a Day!!!

You silence the noise, from your electric clock

turn on the lights, shower and your coffee pot

Do you feel blame for what you have done

Since, the clock signaled, your day had begun

Hundreds of simple tasks, that we do everyday

No qualm of consequence, cost or whom will pay

Trying to survive, with wife and children we create

No concern of air, sea, land or errors we berate

In life's maze we seek wealth and that better life

Finding lies, debt, plague and fear, in this forest of strife

Spirit weak hopeless, afraid, when any query is raised

behind apathy and delusion hide, earth will be unfazed

Nuclear and chemical waste, contaminates all the land

The food chain was tainted, all mutations will expand

Creating wealth is more critical then all human life

knowledge kept repressed, so arrogance could thrive

People's voice was muted, for way to many years

Unanswered questions persist, we can't afford to fear

Prospects to correct mistakes to save this great land

Seems ironic to say but, "Are in the Peoples Hands".

Back to the farm to gather and tell stories of life, hope and inspiration.
