A Tired World



A Tired World


 As towns become compressed,

and continue to build upon ruins of drama,

the wild beasts

who examine life with their hard edge,

the least sentimental among us,

with warring as their superpower,

choose to scorch the land where blood lies. 


Blasts and threats

proclaim what we deal with,

wearily, with worn-out hearts,

while solicitors storm

and subalterns rave.


And we behave as stone effigies, 

of all souls’ despair,

that can only stand and watch,

figurines who weep tears 

as lyrics of the times.


We will recover from the blows

only if we can awaken to new images 

of what can happen in the world,

and exert our will.
