Grey Windows...

Poem By Eric Cockrell

grey windows, grey buildings,
grey streets, grey skies...
grey figures staring,
grey deals are done!

manipulate gas prices,
manipulate food...
manipulate the economy,
manipulate the election.

right and wrong,
never thought of.
hungry mouths and desperation.
win the war,
never raise a gun,
bodies strewn everywhere!

money makes gods,
without conscience or morals.
human lives just tokens,
that buy trinkets for demons!

flag draped caskets,
the stink of money overwhelms.
while patriots dig graves,
for their mothers and sisters.

right and wrong,
never thought of.
hungry mouths and desperation.
pick a President,
who'll stand silent,
as birds of prey pick the bodies!

A Child Is Dying

for every tree you cut down,
a child is dying.
for every barrel of oil that
you drill and spill,

Ashes

it took ashes...
for me to draw
a picture of your living
in black and white...

That's Enough For Me!

from a tiny acorn,
the oak tree grows.
what a man cant find,
a child will know.

A Badge

he wears her like
the badge of honorable
abuse....

I Quit

i quit trying to save the world...
and just offered my hand,
and walked beside it.
i quit trying to find the truth,

A Buddha's Eternal Moment

one lone rose
opened by the sun,
the faint memory of rain,
and the dark damp earth.
