Humanity Rallies

Humanity rallies
The headlines blazed
Tries a comeback
Second page states

She found her heart
In the lost & found
Forty years later
She took a look around

We still practise war
And perfect it to an art
Capital punishment
Proves we are smart

We smirck at good
And hail & laud evil
Worldwide starvation
Causes no upheaval.

Humanity is back, the headlines say
Underhanded propeganda no doubt
Some say...
To the ralley of humanity, pretend parade & array

Disease & tsunamis
We once commanded to stay
Come out and play
Every other day

Tainted our water
Poisoned our air
Baffled & bewildered
We stop & stare


My oh my

Humanity rallies..

Stumped in the way.

She left her heart

Along the way

As I reread this old piece Salsa, I could not believe I wrote it, and do not like it much.

It is unlike most my stuff.

I wrote it in order to vent, after the tsunami, that so few seemed to notice.

Thanks for the comment.

I look forward to seeing some of your stuff soon...

I am very uncomfortable talking about my poetry, Im quite insecure, some is quite good, written in a rich season...

Some is horrid

I must be in the proper place...

The season when the muse appears

Any attempt short of that, is usually horrid

This piece however, was more of an analysis of the times, a regurgatation I personally required, not even designed to be pretty, just scratched out in order to rid my soul of the stench of sadness and death.

As well as the reality that so few noticed.

Still think they would make great song lyrics

I dropped by this morning to see something fresh--and I did. It's always a treat to see what others are doing with their muse. All poetry and music (and sometime paintings or sculpture) exists because of inspiration and if, in the artists eyes, it falls short, it is because of our inability at the time to find the right words or notes--the spirit still lives in the piece. I read what you've written and then ventured into Steve's garage to be taken away for a couple of hours--flutes and accoustic guitars, synthesizers and percussion.

I am whole again. Thanks.

Cloud..

Thanks Cloud, for the exhortation and encouraging words to all, involved in the arts.

Yeah thanks cloud and thanks for the listen...I think many artists have trouble judging their own work from time to time being so close to the piece...for many spending so much time on/with a piece can cloud your judgement on occasion.

Almost all talented artist sometimes put out stuff they think is great that isnt.

And visa versa -
Sometimes they have to pushed to release something they dont think is up to standard and it ends up being recognised by history and others as one of their best.
