Obscenity

There is no greater peril facing the world today

Than the health of the planet slipping away

Yet still the fumes will fill the skies

With noxious fumes we can’t disguise.

We put the power in the hands of them

Who help their friends stay wealthy men

Who care so little for world affairs

They just want profit from their shares.

They break the backs of working people

Then stand in church beneath the steeple

And think their sins are washed so clean

In truth they truly are obscene.

The Tree

He sits beneath the acacia tree
Where once he sat with her called she
She who filled his heart with love
She who now resides above
She who loved him everyway
She who helped him through the day
She who gave him children two
One who now resides with you
She to whom he gave his all
She who made him feel so tall
She whose touch he no longer feels
Who isn’t there to share the meals
O how he misses her called She
He sits and waits beneath the tree.
