Erosion Explosion

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 11:27 pm

Times move on
and people change
as they age
changing plans
changing events
from the patterns
once followed.

Events can erode
from their former
glories if priorities
erode from once
better purposes.

Morality erodes
in the face of
leaders not leading
achievement erodes
as cheaters
keep cheating
education erodes
because teachers take
a beating
due to bureaucratic
unrealistic
standards not worth
meeting.

I wish murder
would erode
with less dying
less bleeding.
I wish hunger
would erode
with more food
and more feeding.
I wish new ideas
would erode
the old
tired greeting
and new thinking
would erode
the warn out
from repeating.

~Miguel

  1. I too feel an urge to turn the society to opposite direction, to turn it towards betterment of values I mean. these days only good things are eroding, in a scary speed, bad things are thriving too well!
