The Peak

 The struggle is real

As the human race

Runs amok

On the downhill side

Having reached its peak 

Decades ago

Pushed harder

By the hoards

Of cancel culture

Fueled by unchecked social media

Parachutes holed by partisan politics

That has poisoned every fiber of life

Each day is filled with upheaval

That blinds 

Hiding the waste land that awaits

Not You

As I watch
What was my life
Crumble to dust
Under the crush of pandemic life
All the rules
Ride the wind
Of social justice
The streets are packed
From pillar to post

As those who lead
Ignore my plight
Saying "not you"
Pointing to the doorway
Marked poverty

Beware

The world lays prone
 To all those
That lust for power
Progressives busily suck
The life from freedom
Unable to control their hunger
They pontificate
Executive orders
While dancing with glee
On the drug
Known as oppression

Upside Down

Hide away
I always hide away
The world seeks comfort
From others close by
I always hide away
Finding comfort within
Because I know who is there
I always hide away
To keep my world
Upside down
Far from the gatherings
Of distant beings

Pandora"s Box

Red tape gnomes talk in circles
Weaving a web of data points
Building models that screen agendas
So they can rest comfortably
In a world of no decision
From their pedestals
Located in gardens
Of guaranteed affluence
While the ordinary
Watch their lives turn to dust
At the foot of Pandora"s Box

No Return

My life is laid out
Behind me
I can only see it
In the mirrors
Of my mind
And muse about
The paths I never took
The loves I never met
On a journey of no return

Suns

I question
How many suns
I will see
December approaches
Like a runaway train
But then I wonder
How many suns
Do I actually need to see
