The Great Divide

The Great Divide

 

Mother son of a rich world

Sixteen classic cars in the garage

and three on the country estate drive

 

Mother son of not a stich world

Railway overpass, a home, one hand on the beg

the other sifting garbage, probably won’t see 25

 

The Great Divide

that separates, us and them

The sky and oceans wide

blind ladies and blind gentlemen

 

Mother son of a bitch world

zeros count more than the people, bet your wage

and a bonnet for a bee-hive

 

The Great Divide

that separates, us and them

The sky and oceans wide

blind ladies and blind gentlemen

The Deepest Sorrow

I wish I felt anything but anger when I see a pregnant woman, affectionately caressing the home in which her baby grows safely. Pain wears the veil of anger so as not to be seen. It buries itself deep in the heart of me where it is safe fr...
