Earth Lies Bleeding.

Poem By Glenn Ford

Abhorrent corruption, inherent unstoppable nature
Massive greedy unwavering thirst for more
Malevolent and un-empathetic human structure
Unthinking and unfeeling like a cheap and empty whore.

Raping and plundering the earth for status and power
Killing and maiming anything in its way
Hiding in an un-impenetrable diamond studded tower
Not considering tomorrow, consuming only for today.

Our natural precious resources taken and sold
No quarter given, no remorse and no shame
Nameless faceless magnates, towering, callous and cold
Hiding behind corporate logos, no repercussions, no blame.

Earth is a shame. I love your use of vocabulary, it paints a good picture.

Flower Power

What is a flower? With it's puny petals and stem
Just a cultivated weed to be crushed under foot
It is not exactly a precious shiny gem
Its just flora, not even worth a second look

All Days Are The Same.

All days are the same
Today could be tomorrow
I feel so ashamed
Full of regret, misery and sorrow


Hello friend remember me I'm the voice of wisdom reason and calm
I'm the one you listened to, to prevent you from coming to harm.
I'm the one that stood over you potecting you from your foes
I'm the one that listened to you when you told me of your woes

Where Have All The Trees Gone Dad?

Dad! When I was in school the teacher showed me a picture of a tree
I've never seen one of those before, tall and handsome and brown and green you see
Do you remember seeing a tree when you were young? My teacher says there were many
She says that they grew all over the world but now days there aren't any


You cannot see me I'm invisible
As I walk around in the crowd
Although I am six foot plus and fifteen stone
And striding straight and proud.

Mid Life Crisis.

I think I've reached my peak
No more seeing clear
The futures looking bleak
I'll be old this time next year.
