Sagacious words

Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. ~ Khalil Gibran

Circles of Destruction

The Spouting of much rotten words wholesale,
fail to comprehend,
the gathering storms of resistance everywhere-
From things rendered,
Invisible of reality, relevance and legitimacy-
To the enormity of,
The nothingness of drowned, pestiferous news.
When brave hopes,
In the face of non-compliance against abuses,
Are brushed away,
Conveniently put into irrelevant files of 'ignore.'
When the skies bleed,
A harsh light onto murdered and lifeless evidence,
And greedy men,
Are empowered by the powerful on a scale, wholesale,
The devastation-
Of incited conflict and the fire storms created en-mass,
Leave consequences,
Even in distant lands of peace and non-comprehension,
Exploitations for wealth,
Often leave smoke and flames, which cause blowback.
