Nothing much has changed
as far as views, eyes exchange

horizon seldom comes near.
Greed breeds chastening grief
overcast mind doesn’t know of relief
until for a split, clouds clear.
The overweight bird falls on the ground
wings clipped, its tender chirps screech around
the flyer crawls in agony and fear.
Civilization with poisoned holocaust
earlier it attacked from the back, at any cost
now it appears from the rear.
Lust violates love in broad daylight trysts
words defeat words, actions freeze at ease
intent remains the same, content and form differ.
Feathers are falling, failing to fly
truths in their spaces, unable to lie
yet nothing has changed in thousands of years.
If it’s time to change, all birds in nesting trees
drop those silly thoughts, from the minds to the seas
killers resting in us will surely disappear.

People easily form into a group and endorse one another to identify a black sheep or a bad apple without realizing that they too are giving in to a different form of holocaust. Simple innocuous statements like ‘I did not understand… Read more »
