week 444 ~ with bags of cash and no manners

with 2 comments

with bags of cash and no manners
they stormed into the hallowed halls
where truth once mattered crass outlaws
bent on stealing our souls banners
proclaimed decency defunct curs
with stone hearts swindled elections
stabbed innocent expectations
for life and liberty to death
now we fight back ‘til our last breath
to bar the future’s destruction

the first line is a quote from Laurence Ferlinghetti

week 213 ~ everything’s coming up roses

with 2 comments

everything’s coming up roses
(please) let the sun shine in
a door opens as one closes
everything’s coming up roses
but still Pinocchio’s nose is
growing so didn’t we win
everything’s coming up roses
(please) let the sun shine in
