“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.

“Remember when.. .”

"Remember when.. ."

“Remember when.. .”

.

Remember when the skies were blue,

And children went out to play,

Before the sky changed it’s hue,

And the earth began to decay.

.

When flowers bloomed,

In sunlight’s ray,

Before the gloom,

Of skies of gray,

Before the doom,

Of every day,

Remember when skies were blue?
