WORDS OF WEARY

A Poem by john Robinson
"

ODE TO DUMB POLITICS

"

In a land full of immigrants. Where the original lands people have been cut down to a minority.
Where hypocrisies rule and human rights are just a matter of opinion.
Where the only thing that really counts is the amount in your wallet.

Where one man's gain is another man's pain.
Where ridicule has become a local name.
Where judgment is judged by the keepers of injustice.
Where peace and serenity are only found deep in one's thoughts.

Where life is projected on the big screen.
Where for some the pale horse is the only real dream?
Draw the sword against creed, we'll make them believe.
In the thick of the fight, someone must bleed.

Why must we talk about black and white?
The genetic way will end this strife.
Homo and Hetero will be no more.
They'll just be androids at your door.

The state monopoly leaps past go.
Collects a lump from the revenue flow.
Just a few more tanks before we go.
Did someone mention, overthrow?

I'm quite weighed down from this whole show.
Will someone please, just take me home...
