“Watched The News Today”

"Watched The News Today"

I was watching the news today,

And what do I see?

.

Politicians blowing sunshine,

And wars overseas;

Blood, and death,

Even killing of our bees;

Robbers and banksters,

On nations they scheme;

Corporations playing god,

Even tampering with our seeds.

.

Skies are turning silver,

From things we can’t see;

The poisoning of our crops,

On which the people feed;

More government than people,

And they say that we’re free;

The only ones living,

Are the wealthy and elite.

.

Cost of living getting higher,

And insurance we can’t eat;

Wages that stagnate,

Unable to afford needs;

More homeless than ever,

Numbers growing like weeds;

Our lives losing value,

Nowhere left to flee.

.

Yes,.. .

I watched the news today,

but not on t.v.,

I opened my eyes,

And this I could see.

“Passed”

Passed

It was nice out,

Till the wind came,

And sucked it all away.

.

Daylight gone,

No warmth, no sun,

Is this the end of days?

.

Humans,.. .

No longer proud,

Hiding in holes like strays.

.

Darkness abounds

In distant screams,

Stars have all passed away.

.

Humanity lost,

Like rabid dogs,

We’ve all become insane.

.

So hungry now,

No plants to eat,

Animals have all decayed.

.

A planet dead,

So lifeless now,

Has simply faded away.

.

Like nothingness,

Never were here,

Just remnants of our day.
