The wake of wild pursuit of wealth,
Trails poor disharmony,
Resentment spawns with seasoned stealth,
Severe acrimony –
Beware hegemony!

We enter an unequal world,
When born to poverty,
No shelter from vile insults hurled,
Nor glimpse of Liberty –
Condemned to Misery!

What gain be there in surfeit wares
When Styx us all awaits,
The less we have, the fewer cares
To merge our diverse fates –
Thanatos all conflates!

Would that a Council of the gods,
Some power shall release
Upon divisive anthropods,
Their avarice to cease –
And seek to live in Peace!

  2. Powerful words and a wonderful image. I am so saddened by the state of our world today….and basically our woes come down to greed – enormous greed. When will we learn? I don’t think we will….a power of the Gods is needed to sort the mess out. Thank you, Bushka…and hope you enjoy a peaceful and loving Sunday…janet. xxx
