Civilized Savages

Civilized Savages

A Poem by Sirius King
"

My Thoughts On The World We Live In

"

Cannibalistic animals

Feeding

Off of each others' pain

Blood sucking leaches

Reaching

For their own personal gain

 

Civilized savages

Educated fools

Empire of vampires

Rearranging the rules

 

Disguised in neckties

Briefcases

And smiling faces

Cloaked in lies

Spiritual wickedness

In high places

 

Coagulated rivers

Calculated killers

Cryptic crimes

Comprised by

Gifted minds

 

Concrete jungle

Play the game

 "or be the game"

The weak who stumble

Are hunted down

 And maimed

 

If you can’t beat ‘em

-join ‘em

It’s the only way

To survive

Stepping on the heads of others

Just to stay alive

 

Its dog eat dog

And every dog has its day

Today is mines- so be smart

 

When you hear the bark


…Stay the hell out of my way!

You feel the same way as me about the people at the top. Evil muther fuckers! I gotta say though dude, I use to like Lauren hill, till I find out she's racist as f**k. That doesn't reflect your poems though. I'm working my way through them. Keep up the goodness.

Loved the Rhyme Scheme title and The Message. Also a Fan of Ms.Hill which really makes me understand the flow of this poem even better.

Every word...took me deeper into this man-made chasm of the executive order; the rich get richer and the result will be just as you predict, I believe: the "dogs" will have their day. Well done, SR.
