Across The Great Pond

Across the great pond

Our brothers in arms struggle

With decision’s pain.

Their new reality looms

On an island all alone.

 

I don’t envy them,

In this turbulent hour,

The uncertainty

As reality sets in.

Promises can be fiction,

Unattainable

As proponents show

Just a day after.

Perhaps thoughts were not thought through

And the fallout considered.

 

But now it’s too late,

The ballots have been cast and

The results tallied.

Leaving is the decision

And there is no turning back.

 

What have you been through,

I would never claim to know.

Your lives are your own

Things are changing, less defined.

Leaving the past…difficult.

 

This is a big world

Where borders sometimes get blurred

And life chaotic.

None-the-less I wish the best

To our friends in the U.K.

I Have Taken Leave

I have taken leave

Though mostly of my senses

They’re gone with the wind

Loftiest of Dreams

Loftiest of dreams cast into the shadows,

What is left to hope for?

Watching what we deem civilization crumble right before my eyes

I lament days gone by.

Overwhelming sadness pervades every waking hour;

I weep, though I weep not for me, but my progeny,

They shall inherit this chaos.

We were to be stewards protecting our world for the future;

We failed…instead we rape and pillage the earth for all that it has

Treading upon its inhabitants for our own profit.

What will be left to pass down, but devastation, war and famine;

The ugliness that we as a species have so ungraciously admitted,

Dwarfing the plagues of Biblical Egypt.
