rising gold

Carpe Diem #1171 

wounded heart



weight of the world
atlas struggles to explain
how, why?
the rivers will flow in filth
as gold rises to the top

teachers speak
to pupils without ears
how, why?
the rivers will flow in filth
as gold rises to the top

universal
good life for all again
how, why?
the rivers will flow in filth
as gold rises to the top

approaching cloud
four horsemen ride a baboon
how, why?
the rivers will flow in filth
as gold rises to the top

    1. It had been a terrible day of the make America great again craziness. Bills introduced to eliminate the environmental protection agency. This followed a series of presidential orders overturning numerous regulations that prevented dumping coal mining waste into the local streams. Thank God for your allowing my voice to participate in this format.
