Ruinous Governments

Its a war on words and ideas that are just,

they make a pact and renegade on the fact 

that you agreed their wielded written word’s;

scorn you and laugh at your confusion and plot

your demise, descending hope falls broken,

and to cope is through tears, heartbreak

and blood shed on your doorstep.

——-

Armies muster their support with guns,

governments insist on their inalienable 

rights over your right to free speech, and

the freedom to care for your famished

family, by pushing up profits for profiteers

and making your income shrink as the

companies raise prices but pay petty tax.

——

There is a whisper that things might be

improving, so that we accept their disdain

and even tolerate their lie infested talk,

We walk an ever decreasing circle of

fascist dictatorships and the liberal loss

of our democracies, having  ignored

the prophets with their scary prophecies.

Fascism

Generations crippled and controlled,

controversially, cruel governments 

count the dead and silence the poor;

while the elite count their moneys

and parade themselves fortuitously

in roles designating fearful fascism.

Comprehensibly overtaking press and

media manipulating and monitoring

until the oppressed seek redress.

——

Painfully the demonstrating populace,

face the potential ruinous choice of

punishment, 

to uphold hope in a vote,

to definitely restore a determined 

democracy, replacing the right wing

ruling by a good people; prevailing

and working for the common good.

Breaking the poor to pay the rich.

There, in the place of privilege and parliament,

she held the flame high. And showed clearly the

darkness that assaults the poor and divided David 

Cameron’s almost managing ’til their larders are 

emptied of succour and their frightful futures fixed

with a hasty handful of wealth cultivated wishes. 

——-

Although this time the poor are paying for the rich,

their fingers in frayed pockets for rich folks’ care,

their homes will go while bloated pockets only pay

for their own pleasures and privileges, homes in

exotic islands, money in expat banks. All are

taking the bread out of the mouths of little babes.

———-

The light will always shine in the darkness and 

the truth will always out.  Turning the lives of the

wealthy patrons and persons of high living into

questions;

and levelling up will become a torrid

affair where polls are lost and a new party born.

The Art of Democracy by the Autocrats.

They sit in chairs, high in office but low in morals,

their tables show the capers of a paper trail that is lit

by more than flames of fire, they burn with people’s

lives lost to avarice, abuse of power, an alter-ego that

professes and stresses while manipulating the minds

——

of  the electorate, to empower the cowering frauds, 

who love to disempower, destroying their livings 

and still they hear the half truths as gold and the

lies as silver, and make a cross for the dross who 

struggle to hide their glee as the free vote for chains.

Corruption and Greed

Bombast and rhetoric that lines the domain,

blasting through democracy and destroying,

bruising the nerves and breaking the news, 

to split and divide neighbours so they can

cruelly conquer the looking lost, the pain

filled poor, the long time oppressed, and 

dignity dies from preventable diseases

while they warmonger to warp their

furtherance. And the fragile minds of

=====================

children are mutilated by ill timed

mumblings that deaden the brain to

hasty honour, love and self-worth

tidily sorted away as something bad,

while the  nasty peddling of putrid 

policies work in the veins of a populace,

to dislocate and deaden until the dead

===================

arise and triumph over the sad sickness

of oppression, organised hatred, and

so a new happence, a hope, like the

halfling trudging through Gondor with

the weight of the world in a wicked ring, 

persevered, while evil conquered itself and 

good overcame. 

Fascist Take Over

Muttering behind their fisted hands, 

and murmuring voiced their complaints,

and muted applause for a strangled clause,

that moderates a response while killing goes on.

———————–

Burbling streams that wear folk down,

and buttering up the cream of influence,

and bartered appeals that threaten children,

through bargaining that weights the loaded die.

————————-

Fractured opposition falls infighting,

failing to see the tyrants’ colluding coup,

and frightened the oppressed are grateful for

fragments  that fall from the tyrants tasty tables.

—————————————–

Imprisoned, passionate prophets cry for lost chances,

indifference feeding fascist lies and cheating, with

promises of rich rewards and contracts to 

shore up their shredding of democracy.

Democracy lost.

Their faces hidden by veiled views of disdain

towards the poor and unemployed, suffering slaves

and  a cold contempt for the ones who stand

against the constant cover-up of criminal 

——–

actions that pass unheeded before the courts,

which they manipulate to their own ends

and the visor of innocence is strengthened

by misinformation and paparazzi headlines.

——–

The right wing mask is on and behind darkling 

doors they force through laws that give them 

unlimited powers, 

give peerages to Russians

and

so, we wriggling like 

baited 

worms 

struggle 

and 

drown, 

to 

feed

their

callous 

coffers.
