The Gospel told by a common man

The Gospel told by a common man

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

World is going crazy. USA need to reset our goals.

"

                      The Gospel told by a common man


              Men with wife and children.
              Fugitive to the ability to succeed.


              With the grain of hope.
              We beckon for a trace of kindness.


              Poverty inflicts all with equality.
              Race and religion mean nothing.
              When you are hungry and homeless.


              Frigid and endangered economy.

              Erode hopes and dreams.

              Held hostage by Leaders in Washington.

              Common man and woman forsaken.
              Left on the sideline hoping and praying.


              Humph and f**k by loan companies.
              Soon Americans will become nomads.


              Wars expedite hiding the flames of truth.
              Shameless leaders beleaguer us with stories
              of Devils and ghosts.


              Soon we will will be isolated and lobotomy.
              Be like tame relics in a museum.


              Need to remove our restrains.
              Start the saga of forth-right people.


              Stop the epidemic of lies.
              Chastise the thieves and so-call leaders.


              We must lust for a good world.
              Jump over hurdles of hate and violence.
              Began a eulogy of a human race who wants
              the truth.


              We need men with mercy and wisdom.
              The erosion of the USA must stop.


              Men/Woman with blind eyes to the poor and sick.
              Lover's of War.


              Their filthy and bloody dreams must died.


               We need the human race who pass out food and 
               medicine.


                Not gun and death.


                We must elect honest men/woman who won't
                change their vote after they are elected.


                For the children. All children.

                Need to put the guns down.

                End the violence.

                Don't need tears of USA, Africa and Asia Mother's.


                For sons and daughter killed and slaughtered for
                the so-call good will of Evil men/woman.

A very poignant piece. It's timing could not be more perfect. Well written. I do see a few errors. Since you asked for help, here are my suggestions:
"Soon we will will be isolated and lobotomy."
lobotomy should be lobotomized
"Need to remove our restrains."
restrains should be restraints
"Their filthy and bloody dreams must died."
died should be die
forthright is one word without hyphen
so-call should be changed to so-called in both places
"Men/Woman change Woman to Women (needs to be changed in both places)
"not gun and death" gun should be guns
" For sons and daughter killed and slaughtered for
the so-call good will of Evil men/woman." Make daughter plural. The last So-call should also be so-called, but I would suggest since you already used it once before this changing it to a synonym like purported which means the same thing to keep from being redundant, but that change would really your choice.
The gist of your message comes across loud and clear. Well done!

"Poverty inflicts all with equality. Race and religion mean nothing. When you are hungry and homeless."-These are such profound lines, and so true. You have outdone yourself with this poem Coyote. I feel your words, especially now. "need to put the guns down"-all over the world. Masterful and passionate work, my friend.

Me either!
Golden Free Thinking words of wisdom that should be heard and applied to each and every life in our land ... Sadly, they all sleep the slumber of apathetic complacency, feeding upon fodder of lies as Sheeple-People UN-cognizant or wise ... Excellent writing and an even more excellent and profound message ... !!!

As one who struggles to be a Free Thinker and to promote Free Thinking, personally, I believe this is the best overall piece of writing that I have read of yours ... Of course, my views may be biased by my Free Thinking ... LOL!

Coyote,
you have found a voice in this poem. The very freedom we have here in the USA is the very platform which we stand with our own voices to be heard and explained. You have given your own wide esplanation with passion. Blessings Kathy

Coyote, you are tired of war, many people are. Its time for you to rest and write poetry. But war will come and the innocent nations will have to take up arms again. I am afraid so.
