Printing Machine

A Poem by Aurora

Chirr, chirr,
The printing machine,
Rolls out the print
On the latest machine,
Chirr, chirr,
The printing machine,
Doles out the news
Of one little battle,
A great little war,
Fought in courtrooms,
In boardrooms,
As one little life dies,
In unclaimed waters,
Of nations fighting
For causes,
They have long ago forgotten.

Chirr, chirr,
Whirrs the printing machine.

I believe the saddest photo I ever seen. Immigrants unwanted. Should of broke the world heart. Me and two soldiers found 24 Bosnia people murdered in a river when I was on a Peace keeper mission. Our world, need to learn. Every life had value. Thank you dear Aurora for sharing your amazing words and thoughts.

The printing machine spews out news at any price. Money, money, money. That tragic image of that poor little mite made mega bucks for someone as it was flashed around the world. The greater the misery, the more shocking the details, the more the coffers fill. That's where you took me Aurora.

Separated in the distant silent witnessing of the cold rolled press flashing the death of an innocent victim. Humanity is lost. Much like the desensitized masses bearing blasé reaction to so much redirection in what is truly happening to them in the name of the shell game of display to bend personal agendas for capital gains as we the people suffer the consequences of blindness
