Society Today

A Poem by Tai Chi Italy
"

Sometimes you just have to say it the way it is...and sometimes it isn't pretty.

"

 

Don’t give me the polite s**t!

I don’t believe one word of it!

You’re almost all scum.

 

You’d rob your own mother.

You’d castrate your own son.

Face your own reflection.

 

Look at what you will

face.  A reflection of you. You! Not so

stupid. Face facts now

 

Or suffer the con-

sequence of your actions

You! Turn them to good

 

Or forever reap

What you sow.  Hell in old age,

Your child’s hand in rage.

Author's Note

Tai Chi Italy
I wrote this in response to the hugely inhumane society that I find myself having to live in. It has to stop somewhere along the line, and this is where I draw my line.

you had your finger in the wound! The last 3 stanzas - so true.. how the western society is developing; people desire a life as everyday-party and life on pump "enjoy today, pay tomorrow"... this is a wake-up poem, I liked this a lot! Thanks for reviewing my poem "The Psychotropic Message". hugs.

I really like this. It is just enough to give voice to the crazy life that most of us detest. Thank you for allowing yourself to bring out the insidious nature of OUR societies wrongNESS.
