Ravings

A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen

Ravings

Lets not see

the error of our ways,

random thinking

as plagiarism

goes commando.

Acorn eating squirrels,

squirrels eating acorns,

reversed polarity

as the battery acid weeps

and the tears of a clown

burn in necrotising fasciitis,

eating away

at the bereft conscience

of world order,

with only psychopathy

for company.

Climate change

doesn't work in these parts.

I guess so Ron but many also have their heads buried in the sand. Many thanks.
Speaking from the experience of being part of this new modern world. Everything is becoming the same and everything new is just something old getting repainted. I hate it how we are so plain in our thinking. We claim to not need books for google can find it. We don't need our friend to make moments when a picture will do. We are fools. Yet, we will learn. For the best teacher of the fool is experience. Thank you for this amazing work.

It is my pleasure and no I am not that cynical friend, I assure you.
In the world of cell phone and not reading. Most kids don't know. Sometimes more than one answer. New world don't know. Everything cost something. Powerful and useful words made me think tonight. Thank you John for sharing your amazing poetry and words.

You are right and this is very sad. Better to be who you want to be. Not a copy.
we have put ourselves in such a bad position with our thinking-----we have started to be apathetic enough to copy others' thinking....and our tears are really hurting---but we cannot blame those before us---we have to accept responsibility.....we put our own make-up on in the end.
