Calamity Amongst Us

Toxic clouds, consuming egos;

we need a little understanding

by those who wield authority but

obedience they’re commanding.

I have accepted my place here

but struggle against strong tides.

I wake every day to sleep walk

led to and from by tunes that lie.

Drinking from the river sustains

but lethal toxins introduced taint

rhetoric covered black does paint

pictures holy but from no saint.

I’m a feather falling pick me up

so you can feel how I feel today.

I have many things I want to say

for hate’s no surprise these days.

Hands are cold but have sympathy

held I feel you and beg you to see

we must supply refuge from hate

that stifles the mind with calamity.
