News Time

Poem By James Waters

Tick tock tick tock
Time ticks away
Soon will come the end
Of another hate filled day

Another murder, another rape
The carnage never ends
Another child molested
Another politician condescends

Another brutal dictator
Butchers and destroys
Another antiquated government
Comes up with useless ploys

Another earthquake or flood
Another fire or war
It’s like the local news
Covers nothing more

Is there nothing left but hate?
in this wretched world
Are violence and anger?
All we have left to hurl?

Is there no love?
Left in the land
Nothing of neighbors
Lending a hand?

How about a report
On a cure for Cancer or Aids
Or peace prevails
And hatred fades

No not a chance
We like destruction and pain
Oh look, what joy
Ten more days of rain

I Hate The News! ! !

Pen Battle

It started with a thought
A pen and a blank page
Slowly the ink flowed
And released my hidden rage

Tamborine Man

I beat my tambourine
On the corner everyday
To earn a scrap of coin
And send my message on its way


Sometimes I laughed
Mostly I cried
That is until I died

How Can You Hate Me

How can you hate me for the color of my skin?
Because I am short or tall or fat or thin
How can you hate me because of my race?
Do we not all have a human face?

Streets Of Blood

A young mother and her daughter
Tease and laugh and play
Their world full of ugliness
Forgotten for today
