Fair's Got Nothin' To Do With It

Fair's Got Nothin' To Do With It

A Poem by T K Little
"

. the scent of "blood" isn't always a bad thing. . . sometimes it can be empowering. if you're not afraid or if you're strong enough to overcome that fear.

"

For getting caught
In front of a bouquet of microphones
A predator apologizes

For getting caught

        This. . .
This is the world today

Then an earthquake of consciousness
Unabashedly arises
From the aether
To chisel deeply into fresh gravestones
Indelicately the words reading something like. . .

‘A predator’s once great career did die here’
     (it will not be the last)

So some quakes have longer nights
More terrible days
Forming very long memories

Like scars

Grotesque
From brutal wars
With imbalanced outcomes
This is about more than individuals
So not all casualties will be guilty
Not all victors will be true
That is war
Such as it is
Perhaps though. . .
Perhaps the ends will bring us better times
(This time)
For the inherently disadvantaged of us

(Time is different)

And some just you know learn to adapt & live with it
'Then an earthquake of consciousness"

This made me realize what wonders words can do

Not all victors will be true
That is war
Such as it is
Perhaps though. . .
Perhaps the ends will bring us better times"
